Unfortunately there are currently no camping facilities on the island, and no camping is allowed along the seafront by the harbour. Therefore currently camping is only possible with the permission of the relevent land owners.

Please ensure that your visit is enjoyable for yourselves, other visitors and the island community by respecting Rathlin's environment - in particular by using the public toilets in the harbour, avoiding damage to stone walls, not lighting fires, and by properly disposing of all rubbish - ideally by bringing it back to the mainland, as the island's bins are often overloaded during the tourist season. Leave no trace! Thank you.
