Northern Ireland Sights

The Ould Lammas Fair

  • Festival–Sight

Updated 04/29/2014

Fodor's Review

Every year since 1606, on the last Monday and Tuesday in August, Ballycastle has hosted the Oul' Lammas Fair, a modern version of the ancient Celtic harvest festival of Lughnasa (Irish for "August"). Ireland's oldest fair, this is a very popular two-day event with entertainers, several hundred shopping stalls, and even a pony show. Treat yourself to the fair's traditional snacks, dulse (sun-dried seaweed), and yellowman (rock-hard yellow toffee).
