Ballina Salmon Festival is one of the West of Ireland's longest running family festivals, attracting crowds of over 250,000 annually to the North Mayo Capital.
The festival was originally named the 'Moy Salmon Festival', based on the fact that Ballina was home to one of the best rivers in Ireland, with the best fishing waters and salmon in the country.
Ballina Salmon Festival is proud of its diverse programme, community ethos and family focus.
One third of the festival's programme is dedicated solely to children, making Ballina the perfect holiday destination for visiting families during festival week.
