As it is a fundraising event, we are hoping to get as many people as possible onto the island to walk the 7 miles (11.2 km) with us. We are therefore asking everyone to try their best to raise £100 each (which is only £10 sponsorship X 10 family/friends!) which will include your registration fee along with soup and sandwich after the walk along with listening to some great live tradtitonal music.To secure your place on the Ramble we ask that you pay €50 as a deposit,this prevents people from pulling out of the walk at the last minute as this was a huge issue for us last year.
-The Ramble starts at 1pm on the day so it is advisable to get the 10am,11.15am or 12pm boat.
-The walk is 7 miles which can take anything from 2 to 3 hours depending on the pace that you walk.
-When you arrive on Rathlin there will be someone waiting at the boat to bring you over to registration.
-After the walk there will be soup and sandwiches served.
-If you are not staying on the Island, the last boat leaving Rathlin going back to Ballycastle will be at 5.30pm
Accommodation is very limited on the Island but here are plenty of places to stay in Ballycastle and come to Rathlin for a day trip. Please click on the link below for a selection of B&Bs:

It takes about 3 hours to drive from Dublin to Ballycastle where you can then get the ferry to Rathlin.https://www.google.ie/maps/dir/Dublin/Ballycastle,+United+Kingdom/@53.It takes about 1 hour from Belfast to Ballycastle by car.
The Rathlin Ferry takes a half hour and you cannot take your car over,it is a passenger ferry only,but it is very important to book the boat before you arrive..Here is the website for the boat!!https://www.rathlinballycastleferry.com/timetable/
