Rathlin Island


Rathlin was at the heart of Dalriada and its story deserves to be told in that same uncompromising, undiluted fashion, embracing everything good about the Island and its people. Rathlin has a history that identifies the journey from Neolithic occupation, to early Christianity,to the Viking raids and the sacking of the monastery, through to ROBERT THE BRUCE and onto the MacDONNELLS. It was one of the last places in the NORTH where the IRISH LANGUAGE was the voice of the people and the islanders have an identity of their own. The days of reliance on the KELP harvesting of old are long gone but not forgotten, as you will discover on the tour. Add to this mix the famous Puffin colony, the legendary Golden hares, and the common seals that take up residence in the bay and you begin to get a feel for this very special island .

Mark believes the time is right to meet new challenges and tell more stories from our past, to open a new chapter in the life and times of Dalriada Kingdom Tours and our Rathlin Island Tour superbly fits the bill for this.
