Join Programming & Partnerships Officer, Keith on our Legends of the Stormy Seas Tour, to hear tales of wrecks, monsters, storms, and much more that's associated with this part of the coast.

Over the years, Carrick-a-Rede hasn't been the safest place to be...

The McDonald clan were massacred by Sir Francis Drake on Rathlin Island, and to add to it, if you ventured into the water, you risked being eaten by the Sea Monster of Portballintrae, or hit on the head by a target being launched by catapult from Benbane Head!

Come along for a insightful chat, covering everything from ghost ships to Vikings, hot air balloons to submarines, and tight-rope walkers to whirlpools.

Tours will be running at 11:00am and 2:00pm.

National Trust Members and Local Pass Holders gain free access. Online booking is strongly recommended. This a free event; normal admission charges apply.

Ticket price includes the full Visitor Experience; reserved onsite parking, walks and talks illustrating the history of the site, access to all facilities, including restrooms and the café, and rope bridge crossing.
