Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge Tour

Located on the famous Causeway Coast (the Giant's Causeway), Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge is a top-priority tourist attraction in Northern Ireland.

Carrickarede rope bridge

It offers visitors not only magnificent views of this wild Atlantic coastline, but also the unique and thrilling experience of crossing a suspended rope bridge.

The bridge spans a 20 metre-wide sound that separates the County Antrim mainland from the tiny island of Carrickarede (derived form the Irish language, meaning "rock of the casting").

The present bridge was erected in 2008 and replaced many previous versions, dating back several hundred years, which were used by local fishermen.

My Belfast Chauffeur offers private tours to the rope bridge which, unlike many bus tours, can include other attractions - see slideshow below for suggestions.
