Traditional Mother’s Day Treats

23 February 2016

The Mayor, Councillor Thomas Hogg, joins Josh Crawford and his Mum Roisin, for a special Mother’s Day afternoon treat.


NI Year of Food & Drink 2016 continues its year-long celebration this March with a feast of heritage and tradition.  One of the finest traditions in Northern Ireland is celebrating Mother’s Day.  This should be a day off for Mum so why not treat her to Mother’s Day Lunch at one of the Borough’s excellent hotels and restaurants  

Enjoy a special Mother’s Day lunch at Barnaby’s in Ballyrobert or Truffles in Randalstown, feast on a carvery at The Templeton in Templepatrick or Knags in Glengormley.  You could also indulge in afternoon tea at The Dunadry or try some homemade cakes at The Cosy Chair in Jordanstown.   Or for the budding master chef, who may be cooking lunch at home, be sure to buy farm assured meat from your local butcher or stock up on extravagant foods from the Sleepy Hollow Farm Shop or Ballylagan Organic Farm.

Afterwards why not feed the ducks at Antrim Loughshore Park, go for a breath-taking walk at Carnmoney Hill or join the "girls" from Music Hall Tavern for a truly magnificent night of dazzling costumes, side splitting laughter and a cast of unique characters at Theatre at The Mill.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Thomas Hogg said, “Antrim and Newtownabbey has many excellent restaurants and facilities to ensure a relaxing family day out is had by all whatever the occasion. During this Year of Food and Drink make sure you get out and about and explore everything our Borough has to offer.”
