Did you know, on a clear night, you can see thousands of stars at Carrick-a-Rede? Low levels of light pollution and accessible well-maintained paths makes Carrick-a-Rede one of the best places to stargaze in the north of Ireland.

Treat yourself 

After a bracing coastal walk - and braving the rope bridge - you'll have worked up an appetite for a delicious treat in our Weighbridge Café. Don't forget to browse the gift section for a souvenir - the majority of our gifts and souvenirs are crafted by artists or producers from the UK or Ireland.
