The Carrick-a-rede rope bridge provides an exciting opportunity for visitors to cross over an 80ft deep chasm to a small island opposite. The bridge was first established for fishermen to cross for salmon fishing over 40 years ago and was last upgraded in 2000 to improve its safety. Once across, enjoy the scenery and wildlife on and surrounding the island. Photo opportunities include views of Sheep Island, Larrybane Head , the disused limestone quarry and many caves along the cliff sides. For those who do not desire to cross the bridge the walk towards it includes information points and excellent views, along with a small café just beside the car park. The bridge is open only for the summer season and the National Trust charges a small fee to visit.
