Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge

While I was in Ireland I took a day tour with a company called Wild Rover day tours. They offer a few different tours and if you are headed to Ireland I highly recommend them. One of the tours they offer is to Northern Ireland where they go to this amazing place called the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge.

This is the view

 The walk to the rope bridge is long (about 20 minutes) because of the up and down (there were more stairs than I could count) but it's totally worth it. By the time you start the final descent to the rope bridge, you come to this open landscape view. On a good clear day, you can see Scotland off in the distance.

The rope bridge allows you to walk from one cliff to the other, over the ocean. The cliffs here are a protected bird sanctuary and as you get to the other side you can hear the birds, who nest on the cliffs (well away from the path of the humans who visit). The bridge isn't always open because of the location, if winds are too high or rain is too heavy, they close the bridge for safety reasons.

I was happy that on the day I was there the bridge was open. I decided that since I had my go pro with me it would be a good opportunity to test it out and see what a video of walking the bridge would look like. So I strapped the go pro to my head and walked the path to the bridge.

Here is the resulting video. I'm still learning how to use the go pro and edit the videos, so it may be a little jumpy.


If you ever go to Ireland, this is a must see. The coastline around Ireland is amazing no matter where you go. However, this is a unique experience that is well worth it. I highly recommend going here if you are in Ireland.
