The Rathlin West Light Seabird Centre is situated four and a half miles from the harbour – roughly a 90-120 minute walk through some steep hills.
RSPB NI staff and volunteers are on hand to welcome visitors and will provide binoculars and telescopes for visitors’ use. There is an admission charge to the Seabird Centre for non-members. Adults £5, children £2.50.
Please note that while the main visitor centre is accessible, there is an 89 step descent to the viewing platform, or 164 steps in total to the bottom of the lighthouse.
Dogs (except for guide and assistance dogs) are not allowed in the Seabird Centre and Lighthouse. There are facilities to tie dogs up outside the Visitor Centre.
