Review and Tips 

Rathlin Island lays at the top of Northern Ireland, in the Atlantic Ocean at the entrance of the Irish Sea. It's a Special Area of Conservation and has a lot of seabirds living on its cliffs. The north side has some spectacular walls full of sponges and cold-water corals. Occasionally you can see grey seals or basking sharks on your way to the dive spots. Rathlin is also a diversity hotspot for sponges with a 140 registred species. And you can also dive some interesting wrecks like the Loughgarry, a WW II troop transporter. Aquaholics.co.uk is the dive operator in nearby Ballycastle.
