The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge stretches across to a small island on the very northern tip of Ireland. It was used in years past by salmon fishermen to reach this strategic location where the fish rounded this point on their migrations.

Day 37

Kylemore Victorian Walled Gardens

Kylemore Castle was built in 1867 by Mitchell Henry as a new home for him and his wife. The Victorian Walled Garden was placed nearby and contains plants and flowers introduced to Ireland before 1901. It is a quiet and beautiful respite from the tour buses in the parking lot! Click the picture below to watch the video.
