Bushmills Salmon and Whiskey Festival returns this year on June 9th and 10th with the best of local food and drink on the menu. Now firmly established as a major attraction, thousands of people are expected to take part in the two days of festivities.
Known around the world for its whiskey distillery and salmon station, the Festival celebrates local food and drink producers, with a flavour of song, dance, tours and heritage.

The festival includes talks and tours of the River Bush Salmon Station, whiskey tasting at the Distillery, Festival Food Tour, cookery demonstrations with celebrity chef Paula McIntyre and local chefs, the Great Bushmills Bake Off, heritage walking tours, traditional music and dance, children’s entertainment, live music in the bars and themed menus in the local restaurants.
