'The Auld Lammas Fair' has taken place annually in Ballycastle, Co Antrim, since the seventeenth century. Celebrated on the last Monday and Tuesday in August, the fair marks the end of summer and beginning of harvest. The origins of the fair are embroiled in the myths and legends of Ireland. This fair is a must for all ages and abilities.

Since back in 1996 we have been organising travel to the Auld Lammas Fair in Ballycastle and this year will be no exception. The Lammas Fair traditionally attracts thousands of people from around the world and 2017 will be no different.


The Lammas Fair features more than 400 stalls of craft, bric-a-brac and farm produce. Local specialities include 'Yellow Man', a sweet honeycomb candy, and a red seaweed known as 'dulse'. Street entertainment, including face-painting and pony rides, lends a carnival atmosphere, while traditional music sessions in the pubs cater to a different clientele.
