Outstanding places in Northern Ireland (Part 2)

4. Carrick-a-Rede

This was one of the first places I visited when I moved to Northern Ireland. As I’ve mentioned before Northern Ireland has plenty of extraordinary places to visit and the majority of them are really special as they haven’t been spoilt by tourists, though let me warn you that Carrick-a-Rede (County Antrim) is an exception as it’s one of the major tourist attractions so when you decide to plan your visit try to pick a quiet season as now the site is open all year round with a few exceptions that you can check on the following link (here you also find information regarding prices and schedules) https://giantscausewaytickets.com/carrick-a-rede-tickets Continue reading

The journey takes between 25-40 minutes. If you click the links below you will find more information about the ferry’s timetable and prices. Continue reading
