Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

For more than 300 years local fishermen have been erecting rope bridges spanning 20 metres over the 30 metres deep chasm for the purpose of salmon fishing. Now there are no fishes in the area however the bridge is very popular a tourist attraction and provides an exhilarating, though a bit scary, experience to tourists. The bridge is quite safe but reportedly there have been few instances when tourists got stuck on the tiny Island as they didn't have enough courage to take the return trip over the swaying bridge and ultimately had to be rescued by boat.
