Rathlin Sound Festival commences with Blessing of the Boats

Newly rebranded for 2024, the Rathlin Sound Festival celebrates the people, culture & heritage Ballycastle and Rathlin Island in the Causeway Coast and Glens of Northern Ireland and commenced with the annual “Blessing of the Boats ceremiony.

The exciting annual 10-day celebration of our rich local history returns Friday 24th May – Sunday 2nd June 2024.

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, in collaboration with Ballycastle Community Development Group and Rathlin Development and Community Association, bring you this hugely popular celebration, with a packed programme of activities on both dry-land and at sea, inspired by the Rathlin Sound – the body of water connecting Rathlin Island to the mainland in Ballycastle.

Visitors can look forward to a diverse programme of live music performances, ‘have a go’ activities . . .
