See what makes the Carrick-a-Rede bridge so popular.
Erected in 1755, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge in Northern Ireland has long attracted travelers with its magnificent views and thrilling walk.
Dangling some 100 feet over the rocky waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the rope bridge takes visitors across cliffs where they can access the tiny island of Carrick-a-Rede. Since it’s become such a popular attraction, the bridge has introduced a new timed ticket system to alleviate traffic.
As the new changes come into effect, Travel + Leisure takes a look back at the famous attraction's history and what makes it so beloved to visitors and locals alike.
