Following record crowds at the 2013 event, we are excited to once again host our world renowned Highland Games, which officially kicks off the P&O Ferries Dalriada Festival.
Glenarm Castle will once again take centre stage at this year’s Dalriada Festival with its famous Highland Games, but with an exciting new theme. The estate will come alive with the roar of giants, made up of previous Highland Games champions, battling it out to be crowned Glenarm Castle Champion of Champions. Over two days courage, passion and pride will take centre stage as the sounds of heavy hammer throwing, putting of the Causeway Stone (28lb) and caber tossing fill the air. The clash of the strongmen kicks off on Sunday 13th July with Lord Antrim opening the event at 11am.
The World’s ONLY Chic Sheep Fashion Show will make a welcome return to the Highland Games this year – if you think you’ve a fashionable sheep then get their glad rags on and bring them along!
The Champion of Champions Highland Games at Glenarm Castle also offers an array of many different attractions and activities including an array of fine food and drink, celebrity chef demonstrations, numerous music and dancing stages, performing arts, fine foods, displays, children’s entertainment, arts and crafts, helicopter pleasure flights and much much more.
