This is my last Ireland post, I promise. I had this post queued up and then I forgot about it and then it kind of disappeared when I switched the site over. That said, I think I saved the best for last. The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was one of my top three stops during the entire trip. If you’re making your way to Ireland, I would definitely not skip over Northern Ireland.
We lucked out with the weather and had a gorgeous morning crossing the rope bridge and exploring the grounds. The light was surreal and the water was crystal clear.
So I kind of thought the rope bridge would be a lot longer. I was a little disappointed when I saw it from a distance. “That’s it?” I thought. But then you get closer and you start realizing just how high up the bridge is from the water. I just wanted to scoot across it as fast as possible. The views on the other side were ridiculously worth it.
I recommend getting to the rope bridge earlier in the day– there weren’t too many people there when we got there and it made crossing the bridge a lot more fun without having to wait in too long of a line.
UNREAL. Right?! I know it’s hard to believe but the pictures barely do it justice! The birds were having a field day flying every which way, enjoying the weather and blue skies.
So once we on the other side of the bridge, there was a few cliffs and ledges to explore. I was terrified of the edge though. At one point Garrett’s shoe slipped because the grass was wet and, while he was quite a way from the actual edge, I freaked out. Like, I legitimately pictured him going right off the edge and then I almost threw up from nerves. When that happened I was really pretty ready to cross back over to the other side!!
And that’s a wrap on the Ireland posts! Every time I see a photo from the trip, I get a little pang in my heart. I can’t wait to return. It’s such a special place!!!
