About:

Experience the Time-Honored Tradition of the Auld Lammas Fair! 

Step back in time and join us for a journey into Ireland’s rich cultural heritage at the Auld Lammas Fair, a beloved annual event held in the charming seaside town of Ballycastle. Taking place on the last Monday and Tuesday of August, this historic fair is a celebration of community, commerce, and tradition that has been cherished for generations.

As Ireland’s oldest traditional fair, the Auld Lammas Fair attracts visitors from far and wide, drawn to the lively atmosphere and array of attractions that await. From the bustling street market to the vibrant street entertainment, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at this iconic event.

For two days, the streets of Ballycastle come alive with the sights and sounds of trading, bargaining, busking, and amusement. Browse through more than 400 stalls offering a diverse range of goods, from crafts and bric-a-brac to farm produce and local delicacies.

Indulge your sweet tooth with a taste of “Yellow Man,” a beloved honeycomb candy that has become synonymous with the fair. And don’t miss the opportunity to sample “dulse,” a red edible seaweed that is a unique local specialty.

Whether you’re a seasoned fairgoer or experiencing the Auld Lammas Fair for the first time, you’re sure to be captivated by the timeless charm and warm hospitality of Ballycastle. Join us as we come together to celebrate tradition, community, and the simple joys of life along the beautiful Irish coast.
