General information

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge
81429-Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge
Carrick-a-rede

Connected to the cliffs by a rope bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, Carrick-a-Rede Island (home to a single building - a fisherman's cottage) is the final destination.

Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the rope bridge was first erected by salmon fisherman 350 years ago.

In 2016 Carrick-a-Rede welcomed the highest number of visitors ever to this exhilarating rope bridge experience.

As we approach our traditional busy season, we have introduced some new measures to help ensure your experience to Carrick-a-Rede is the best it can be.

As a conservation charity we are committed to preserving and protecting our special places and spaces for everyone to enjoy. This includes protecting ongoing conservation, managing health and safety and trying to ease traffic congestion around the site.
