Because I have been across rope bridges before, I didn't expect to be so impressed by the experience at the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. It was awesome! A few tips - they will close due to wind gusts, and during peak tourist season, they will sell...More

The walk to the rope bridge involves an easy path then lots of steps. A person with a stick in our party made it! Its a lovely spot near to the Causeway and unless we had been on a tour we may have missed it...More
