We left Derry in the morning toย Ballymoney . On the way we saw Dunluce castle. The iconic ruin of the castle sitting on a rocky outcrop , connected to mainland via a bridge. In the 17th century Dunluce was the seat of the earls of County Antrim and saw the establishment of a small town in 1608.

Our next stop was Carrick-a- rede (rope bridge).ย Connected to the cliffs by a rope bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, Carrick-a-Rede Island (home to a single building – a fisherman’s cottage) is the final destination. Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the rope bridge was first erected by salmon fisherman 350 years ago.

The bridge was almost a mile’s walk from the main bus stop. It was sunny with lovely weather and view across the ocean. After the visit we walked along the spectacular coast to Ballycastle , one of the place where “Game of Thrones” was shoot.

On the was he took us to his village which is basically a small community, ย where no one was living at that point.
