The interesting bridge...

The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge
I've never been to Northern Ireland, but I saw it from the internet. I think that Northern Ireland has interesting bridges to visit such as the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is one of the popular tourist destinations bordered by Antrim county, one of the six counties of Northern Ireland. The bridge connecting the mainland to the tiny Carrick Island has a length of 20 meters and a height of 30 meters below the rock.
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge can be used, as the coastal scenery is good. A long time ago, the fishermen who originally built this bridge to cross the strait to Carrick Island only needed to check salmon trap nets.
Nowadays, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge has become a major tourist attraction which can attract tourists to flock here to challenge the courage to cross.
So, if I have a chance to go there, I would like to challenge my courage to cross the bridge, although I‘m a little afraid of height. But I want to go over and see the good view of Carrick-a-Rede Island.
