The whole of the north coast of Northern Ireland is stunning, with unbelievable views around practically every turn. But the rope bridge at Carrick-A-Rede is incredible. You have to walk quite a distance in from the parking lot, so be prepared. But the views and...More

There were quite a few steep steps to the bridge. The walk to the bridge is fairly long, but reasonable. It might be tiring for some.
