Famous for its rope bridge, (unique in Ireland) – which connects the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede Island.
The island until recently was an active salmon fishery, with an old fisherman’s bothy, old ropes, and nets still visible.
Now a major visitor attraction offering an exhilarating coastal path and rope bridge experience from the cliffs to the rocky island, with stunning views of Rathlin and the Scottish Isles, as well as a noisy seabird colony.
On route to the island, the grassy slopes and rocky outcrops are awash with colour in late spring/summer (the site is an Area of Special Scientific Interest), on the basis of its flora and unique geology – being at the centre of an ancient volcano.
Mobility parking spaces.
Car park, tea-room and coastal path open all year.
Rope Bridge open weather permitting.
