Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, Co Antrim, is not for faint-hearted as the narrow passage transports daring tourists from the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede.

Lough Erne, Co Fermanagh, is a series of two connecting lakes which create a magically serene setting for a gentle stroll or also the ideal place to kayak and enjoy the surroundings from the centre of the water.
