Top 100 Attractions Review

Now before I start telling you about the rope bridge itself, I have one mighty confession to make. Obviously as aforementioned in the name, this is a rope bridge and it is true to state that it is fairly high off the ground! On the day that I visited this attraction, despite being very scared of heights, I had built my confidence up to get from one side to the other, but nerves won out on the day and I just couldn’t bring myself to cross over to the other side, excuse the pun! Nevertheless, I stood perched in a position where I could survey everything and I have to say people seemed to be having a great time. Obviously, these people must of had a head for heights or maybe just better will power than I, but for whatever reason only known to them, they made their way over and back with the greatest of ease.

Carrick-a-Rede

Attraction in County Antrim

Carrick-a-Rede

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. As we approach our traditional busy season, we have introduced some new measures to help ensure your experience to Carrick-a-Rede is the best it can be. As a conservation charity we are committed to preserving and protecting our special places and spaces for everyone to enjoy. This includes protecting ongoing conservation, managing health and safety and trying to ease traffic congestion around the site.
