Rathlin Island Sponsored Walk

A five mile fundraising walk round Rathlin - Let's get ready to ramble!

Join us as we hop aboard the ferry and set sail for the beautiful Island of Rathlin for our third annual sponsored walk.

Rathlin Island, lying off Antrim’s Causeway Coast, has a rare and untamed beauty. The wildlife is evident before you even step ashore, with the ferry crossing presenting opportunities to spot auks, gannets, gulls and even porpoises or dolphins if you’re lucky! 

Leaving Ballycastle on the 11.15am ferry, the sponsored walk will begin at noon and cover an approximate 5 mile circular route of the picturesque island.  

The walk will be led by an experienced local guide who will inform you about the beautiful surroundings and wonderful wildlife, as well as the history of the island. The route will also take in some spectacular cliffs (weather permitting) and beautiful scenery! 

There will be time for lunch and free time at the end to relax and enjoy island life before departing Rathlin on the 5.30pm ferry.

Registration fees are £15 per adult, £5 for Senior Citizens with valid Smartpass and £5 per child to take part (this includes your return ferry and services of a guide). Please note children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.

We ask participants to aim to raise a minimum of £45 sponsorship in support of our work. Spaces are limited so for more information or to book your place please email emmam@meningitis-ni.org or call 028 9032 1283 today.

Ask a question

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects, like Charlotte.
