*Tickets will not be issued to anyone travelling on either of the last 2 ferries from Ballycastle to Rathlin unless they have accommodation arranged. This is due to there being no return sailings from Rathlin to Ballycastle after these sailings. Day trips are not available if travelling on these sailings, therefore you will need to have an accommodation booking. This is a precautionary measure by RIFL to avoid anyone being stuck on the island with nowhere to stay.*
