RATHLIN Sound Maritime Festival got underway at the weekend with its mix of good food, music and family fun proving as popular as ever.
Now firmly established as an exciting showcase of the region's rich cultural heritage, the 10-day event celebrates the close connections between Rathlin Island and Ballycastle.
With the Naturally North Coast and Glens Artisan Market, traditional crafts, and have-a-go activities on the water, the festival's packed programme offers something for everyone.
Foodies were treated to cookery demonstrations from the likes of Ruairidh Morrison from North Coast Smokehouse and Darran Benham from The Bushmills Inn, with the best of local produce on the menu.
And there's still much more to come as the festival fun continues until next Sunday (June 4).
