Sway above the waves at Carrick-a-Rede
Take a trek on horseback, and enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of the north Antrim hills and coastline in the company of expert local guides from Shean’s Horse Farm. Next, sway above the waves at Carrick-a-Rede. Suspended almost 100ft/30 metres above the sea, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge has linked tiny Carrick Island and the County Antrim mainland for around 350 years. You'll need to book tickets, as there are many looking to test their mettle here. So keep an eye on the clock and get there in good time. Take a deep breath, step onto the sturdy, wooden slats, and you'll be rewarded by some of the best views on the Causeway Coastal Route. Look down and you'll catch intriguing glimpses of mysterious caves and caverns as the ocean swirls far below you. That is, if you're brave enough...
If you have more time:
It’s a short hop to Ballintoy Harbor, one of the many breathtaking Game of Thrones® filming locations dotted along the Causeway Coast. If you’re a big fan of the HBO series, then you’ll adore Giant Tours Ireland. Flip, your local guide and driver was a stand-in actor for Hodor, so has wonderful stories and anecdotes from his experience.
