Summer time is around the corner, and with that we come to into Festival season. We love cramming in as many fun festivities as possible throughout the year and 2019 will be no exception, will we be seeing you there?

Ardress House “Apple Blossom” Sundays

We will, of course, be attending the ever-wonderful Apple Blossom days in Ardress House coming this month. Our apple blossom has arrived and it’s a beautiful time in the orchards. “Apple Blossom Sundays” are the perfect time to visit our orchards and do a tour of the house too. Check out the details at

Enjoy an action-packed and exciting programme of international country sports competitions and displays.

Plenty more to come….

July should be a busy one too for Mac Ivors Cider, could we possibly get another GLORIOUS summer? We have plenty in the pipeline, but we’re going to let you know closer to the time. Sarah will be touring the country doing tastings too, so keep an eye out for the CiderMobile! It’s not all work either for her as she will be heading to Reading Craft Beer & Cider Festival this weekend, and Bristol Craft beer festival in June!! It’s a tough life;-)

Let us know if there are festivals near you where you would love to see Mac Ivors Cider. We love getting out to meet our lovely customers and letting people try our delicious Irish Cider.
