Daredevils rejoice - a jaw-dropping Skywalk rope bridge has just opened in a subtropical garden in Kerry and it looks like a childhood dream come true.

It sits at 36 foot above the Delligeenagh River and is an insane 112 feet long, almost twice as long as the famous rope bridge in Carrick-a-Rede and already it's attracting a lot of attention from locals and tourists who are loving the jungle vibe.

How cool does this look?!

Kells Bay House and Gardens on the Wild Atlantic Way is the new home for this deadly attraction, and owner Billy Alexander told the Lonely Planet that: “The inspiration for the rope-bridge derives from the rainforest and jungle plant exploration trips [I made].

"Though prevalent throughout South-East Asia, this type of bridge is often referred to as a Burmese Rope Bridge."

We can't wait to pretend we're Mowgli and leg it across this - just don't look down at the drop below.
