Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge – one of the best tourist attractions in Northern Ireland | United Kingdom
Carrick-a-rede (‘rock in the road’) Rope Bridge is located near the town of Ballycastle in Northern Ireland, which is a part of United Kingdom. The bridge is 20-meters long and is made of planks and ropes and connects the mainland with the tiny Carrick Island. It is 25 meters above the sea.
The bridge stretched local fishermen here in late April to September for more than 200 years, just for the salmon fishing season, but now there are very few salmon left. Therefore it is now only tourist attraction that is open for the whole year.
However, with approx. 250.000 visits a year it is one of the most visited attraction in United Kingdom.
