Description:

The final destination is Carrick-a-Rede Island (home to a single building-a fisherman's cottage) connected to the cliffs by a rope bridge across the Atlantic Ocean. The rope bridge was first erected by salmon fisherman 350 years ago when it was suspended nearly 100 ft (30 m) above sea level. Carrick-a-Rede welcomed this exciting rope bridge experience with the highest number of visitors ever in 2016. As we approach our traditional busy season, we have put in place some new measures to help ensure that Carrick-a-Rede's experience is the best it can be. We are committed to preserving and protecting our special places and spaces as a conservation charity for everyone to enjoy. 

This is a busy attraction on the North Coast , and 7£ per person. The views are absolutely stunning, all the way from the car park right up to the islands over the bridge. If you're going here, make sure you wear sensible footwear, - the ground is uneven and can be slippery, and also take a decent camera with you. The walk to the bridge is fairly long, and difficult in places, but it is worthwhile. They have, very thoughtfully, placed benches at various points along the way, so you can rest if you need to. Apologies if this seems blunt, but if you're in a wheelchair, or are unable to walk very far, forget it - it will be far too difficult for you and there's no where that you can even get a good view of the rope bridge without walking a fair distance. if you can walk, but with difficulty ( I have arthritis and angina) grit your teeth, get on with it, and you won't be disappointed.
