St Patrick’s DayTuesday 17 March 2020
Slemish, Broughshane and Raceview Mill
Join us on Tuesday 17 March to celebrate St Patrick’s Day and take part in the annual trek up Slemish to enjoy the spectacular views. The one and a half kilometre round walk to the summit and back takes approximately one hour in good weather.
For those who would enjoy an easier trek than Slemish, a gentle riverside walk from Raceview Mill takes visitors past the Raceview hedgehog habitat and the stunning Broughshane wildlife pond to Houston’s Mill. Why not visit Raceview Mill or one of the many renowned eateries in the village?
Broughshane Community Association will provide the hub of the event, with outdoor entertainment, including traditional music and dance, for the whole family to enjoy all free of charge! Plan to spend the whole day or just come along in the afternoon and finish with some fine local food or a family meal. The award-winning Naturally North Coast and Glens Artisan Market will attend for the first time, offering visitors the unique market experience showcasing artisan produce and high quality hand crafted goods.
FREE park and ride at Michelin, Raceview Road. The shuttle bus service will operate from 9am-4pm (last collection from Slemish)
