As we said it is only nine miles from where the Giant Causeway Tours take place but it’s also ten miles away from Dunlace Castle so you could have a fantastic day out going on a Giant Causeway Tour, visiting the Dunlace Castle and crossing the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge.
If you’re looking for a challenge then the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge is for you, it’s an exhilarating experience which can be a challenge for even the bravest of height lovers!
You will find the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge along a coastal walk of less than one mile – 0.6miles to be precise. The coastal walk to the rope bridge is a winding one but there are some wonderful vantage points where you can stop and view the incredible natural beauty. A camera is definitely required to capture the amazing views available.
The geology, the fauna and the flora surrounding Carrick-A-Rede have won this area recognition as a place of special scientific interest.
If you are feeling a tad more daring why not pop along to the Sheep Island View Hostel located in Ballintoy before going to the rope bridge? At the hostel you can see photographs of people doing various stunts while crossing the rope bridge – are you daring enough to do a stunt yourself?
It is important to note that only eight people can cross the rope bridge at one time and it’s highly recommended that you wear suitable clothing and footwear to cross this bridge.
