This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, 119A Whitepark Road, Ballintoy BT54 6LS Northern Ireland
The Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge was first established in 1755 – nearly 265 years ago! In its day there was only one single hand rail and the odd wooden slate every few steps. It was highly unsafe and a real thrill seeker may have found the excitement in crossing. The bridge has massively evolved from then to create a safer experience whilst keeping the excitement and thrill of crossing intact. Located along a stretch of the North Antrim Coast, the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge sits roughly 100 feet over the hollow waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
The crossing is often considered daring and for thrill-seekers due to the bridges tendencies to sway in the wind and the drop from looking down. We find this is a great stop and a great piece of the North Antrim Coast to include on our Giants Causeway Tour.
**Please Note** - Admission to the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge is done via time slots and bookings. If you are looking to cross the bridge please get in touch and we'll assist you on times to suit your your.

The Giants Causeway, the main attraction of the North Antrim Coast is one of the brightest and best attractions on the whole island of Ireland. The Causeway itself has plenty of Irish myths for your guide to tell while your visit to the attraction is under way. To see the Giants Causeway is certainly breath-taking but to experience it with the beliefs of a giant actually building it, is another. The hexagonal patterns that create the different structure like formations through the rocks can be verified by none other than yourself with things like 'The Wishing Chair', 'The Camel', 'The Giants Foot' and the Cliff-Top Path, all of which you will be shown during your experience!
