Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge : Michelin's recommendations
A 20m-long rope bridge is set up every year for those who want to go fishing on the island, in quest of the salmon migrating to spawn in the River Bush or River Bann. The island forces the fish north (the name means “rock in the road”), directly past the rope bridge erected here each year. 25m above the water, it bounces and wobbles underfoot. Superb coastal views.
