The festival which was a fantastic, colourful, culturally rich afternoon was a resounding success, and with almost 25,000 in attendance was a true demonstration of the respect for NI�"s ethnic diversity. We are sure all will agree that this was the largest and most successful Mela to date and a true cultural experience for all who attended.
A short coastal footpath leads to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. On the way, there are wonderful vantage points to stop and take in the natural beauty. The geology, flora and fauna have won Carrick-a-Rede recognition as an area of special scientific interest. Fulmars, kittywakes, guillemots and razorbills breed on the islands close to the rope bridge.''Of course, Carrick-a-Rede also boasts an exhilarating rope bridge experience. Traditionally fishermen erected the bridge to Carrick-a-Rede island over a 23m-deep and 20m-wide chasm to check their salmon nets. Today visitors are drawn here simply to take the rope bridge challenge!
