WHAT TO EXPECT

From market stalls offering a vast selection of local delicacies for you perusal, to live music and arts to our favourite; the Bushmills Banquet! A ticketed affair, the Banquet is set up as a communal dining event, showcasing local chefs and the fine, fine, fine produce that this part of the world is famous for. The room was absolutely buzzing last year; strangers coming together from all parts of the country to discuss super local food over plates of super local food. A real highlight to the night is that every dish is cooked fresh by local chefs on the stage, right in front of you.

There was so much food and drink provided as part of the banquet that it was hard for us to pick our favourite. But trust us, you will definitely want to leave the car at home for this one - the cocktails that were served have my mouth watering as I type. Of course, there will be the chance to also sample some of the whiskey that has made this town world famous, and boy does it flow in plentiful supply!
