Manor House Bed & Breakfast.

"We are excited to be opening this year 1st June 2021! We have made the decision to keep the house for guests only this year given the situation with Covid 19 and as such will only be serving breakfast and dinner to guests. We are however in the process of installing a food truck at the front of the house to serve light lunch, tea and coffee for visitors."

Recently restored and refurbished, The Manor House Rathlin Island is in the jaw-dropping location of Church Bay overlooking the harbour, with stunning panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean.

Steeped in history, the listed Georgian Manor House built in the 18th Century, comprises a licensed restaurant, eleven guest rooms, and an event space to accommodate forty guests.
