Don't miss the chance to visit Northern Ireland's only offshore inhabited island, Rathlin. Chug across the picturesque Church Bay by ferry before landing in the harbor and exploring this L-shaped marvel. With a population of around 140 people, Rathlin is home to some incredible legends: ask the locals about Robert the Bruce and his spider – you won't be disappointed!
Take a tour of the "upside down lighthouse", Rathlin West Light, one of the Great Lighthouses of Ireland. You can also discover Rathlin's wonderful wildlife: look out for seals on the rocks, hares in the fields and seabirds including puffins, kittiwakes, razorbills and guillemots.
Once you're back on the mainland, pick up a bag of super-fresh fish and chips from Morton’s in Ballycastle – sea bass, cod and haddock, fresh off the boat and mouthwateringly good.
