  • Absolutely brilliant place. Finally got over to Rathlin last month (July) with our 2 and 5 year old kids and they had a great time. Wonderfully low tech (if you want coffee ask for a mug from behind the till), knowledgeable and friendly staff, and a stunning setting. Worth the price of our RSPB membership alone. Go to see puffins and about 100,00 (probably more) guillemots!! Couldn't recommend highly enough. Our kids had a ball and we're not even huge bird watchers. (If you're used to be entertained by performing seals and slot machines though, this isn't the place for you.)
  • Excellent. They provide binoculars. Staff on hand to give information. Shelter to have a seat. Educational room with video footage. Not sure about disabled access as very steep. Very interesting lighthouse, must be seen, not going to spoil the adventure. Ticket cost £5. Toilet & tea making facilities available whilst waiting for Berts puffin bus!!
