20 Surprising Sights in Northern Ireland

Dunluce Castle

Dunluce Castle is the kind of castle ruins one would expect to and should see along an ocean cliff in Northern Ireland. While the castle is completely in ruins, it’s easy to spend an hour or two exploring the remains and imagining that fateful night in the 1600s when the dining room collapsed into the sea during a party.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

The original rope bridge was a single-hand rope bridge built in 1755 by salmon fishermen to connect tiny Rock in the Road island to the mainland. Today, a more stable bridge exists to transport visitors to the life of a fisherman of yesteryear and some spectacular views.
