Bushmills Salmon & Whiskey Festival 2019

The Salmon & Whiskey festival, which celebrates the local heritage and fine produce of the area, returns in June 2019. The Bushmills Inn is delighted to be part of this weekend of fantastic entertainment and activities for another year. 
The jam-packed festival spreads across Bushmills Main Street, Millennium Park, Bushmills Distillery and The Salmon Fisheries on 8th & 9th June. 

If you are one of the lucky ones to have snapped up tickets for this year’s Bushmills Banquet, then you're in for a taste tantalising evening which kicks off at 7pm on Friday 7th June to launch the Festival weekend. Working in collaboration with other Bushmills businesses, The Bushmills Inn is delighted to be creating this year’s desserts. If last year is anything to go by, you’re in for a treat. 

Local talented chefs will entice and capture your attention with their wide range of cookery skills and delicious recipes during their cooking demonstrations which take place throughout the day on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th. This year will also see the return of the much loved Naturally North Coast and Glens Artisan Market along with a range of live music, craft workshops, heritage talks and food tours!

To celebrate the International Year of the Salmon, the Fisheries are open Saturday and Sunday and will provide educational activities, complemented by informative stands and interactive activities such as angling simulators and fly tying demonstrations. Don't forget, you can also pop up to the Bushmills Distillery to experience the world-renowned Whiskey tasting tour. So, come along to Bushmills for the weekend, bring the family and have the ultimate foodie experience this summer!

At The Bushmills Inn, we will be serving locally sourced dishes throughout the festival or why not pop in for a pint, sample one of our whiskey flight or enjoy live music on the Saturday evening in our traditional Irish Bar.
