Carrick-a-rede rope bridge- Causeway Coastal Route
Carrick -a-rede rope bridge on the causeway coastal route is a must for all travellers.
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen in 1755
Connected to the cliffs by a rope bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, Carrick-a-Rede Island (home to a single building - a fisherman's cottage) is the final destination.
Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the rope bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen 350 years ago.
In 2016 Carrick-a-Rede welcomed the highest number of visitors ever to this exhilarating rope bridge experience.
