First erected by salmon fishermen in 1755, the magnificently crafted bridge spans across two rugged cliffs 30m above the wild Atlantic Ocean. Fear is not an option - just don’t look down!
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, first erected by salmon fishermen in 1755, spans across two rugged cliffs high above the wild Atlantic Ocean.
If heights aren’t your thing…DON’T LOOK DOWN – Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is suspended 100ft (30m) above sea level and definitely isn’t for the faint hearted.
Below the cliff line a lonely cottage looks out across the sea, waiting for the return of fisherman with their catch.
