The Dalriada Festival is well established as N.Ireland’s biggest cultural family festival taking place at the iconic Glenarm Castle & Village annually in July.

Attracting in excess of 30,000 annually, the main objective of the Dalriada Festival is to recycle and share talent, renew passion and belief in our local area, and regenerate excitement in our land, its people and our shared cultural heritage.

The Festival has something for everyone and encompasses a varied programme of action packed events to include World Class Highland Games, Europe’s Strongest Man, Live Wrestling, Wife Carrying Championships, Pipe Band Championships, Fine Foods, Chef Demonstrations, Pop-up Restaurants, numerous music and dance stages featuring over 50 acts, craft/trade stalls and exhibitions, performing arts and children’s entertainment.


There is food everywhere on the grounds of Glenarm Castle of all types and varieties. There is the food to go area, where you can find fast food that fills a gap. But also there is local produce from local traders, there are street traders plying their wares and on Sunday there is the fine food area with BBQ demonstrations. There are also cookery demonstrations from professional chefs for you to hone up your culinary skills.

This year’s festival will once again see the return of the NI Food Pavilion at the festival on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July
