Join us on Thursday 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.

Why not visit one of the many renowned eateries in the village?
