The Ould Lammas Fair
Ireland’s traditional oldest fair which takes place on the last Monday and Tuesday of August. The present day fair provides street entertainment and market stalls.
Two days of trading, bargaining, traditional music and dance, horse trading village, amusements, artisan market and street theatre complimented by activities over the preceding weekend to add to the atmosphere in the beautiful seaside resort of Ballycastle.
The Fair traditionally attracts thousands of people from around the world and features stalls selling craft, bric-a-brac, local crafts and farm produce to mention a few! Local specialities include ‘Yellow Man’ a sweet honeycomb candy and a red edible seaweed known as ‘Dulse’.
Locals look forward to the fair and enjoy meeting up with old friends that they haven’t seen from the previous year! A good chat and a bit of craic is sure to be had.
