Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge

With the creak of the wooden slats in the rushing wind, the waves swirling beneath your feet and the salty spray in your nostrils. Carrick-a-Rede is one of Northern Ireland’s most loved attractions and the most famous rope bridge on the Emerald Isle.

Crossing the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is an exhilarating experience as the rope bridge is connected to the cliffs almost 100ft (30m) above the Atlantic Ocean and open to the elements.

The cliff-side trail offers spectacular views of the coast, and on a clear day offers magnificent views of Rathlin Island and the rolling coast of Scotland.

The Dark Hedges

The tree arches of the Dark Hedges have been famous for a long time with locals in Northern Ireland, but it wasn’t until they were used as a film location in HBO's epic series Game of Thrones as the Kingsroad, that they became a well-known tourist attraction.

This beautiful avenue of beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century. It was intended as a feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later the trees have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland and a popular attraction for tourists from across the world.
