Jigs & Rigs 2011 – Important travel information

Jigs & Rigs is happening the same weekend as The Armoy Road Races. The straightest Route to Ballycastle is through Armoy. Armoy and some of the roads around it will be closed:
Friday Practise Roads Closed from 2.30pm Reopen NO Later Than 9.30pm
Saturday Races Roads Closed from 10.00am Reopen NO Later Than 6.30pm
If you are travelling to the festival during these times then you will need to avoid the closed roads. More info on road closers etc is here:

It is possible to get to Armoy and then go left into the town although it will be very busy. Take the B147 Carrowreagh Road out of Armoy and follow it to its end, a T Junction. Take a right and immediate right again, don’t cross the bridge. Come down the slip road and Right again straight into Ballycastle. Ballycastle is signposted along most of this route.


Avoid Armoy all together. Don’t turn off the Frossets Road for Ballycastle. Keep going to Ballymoney. Stay on the bypass, do not go into Ballymoney. Then go straight through the roundabout and take the next right, sign posted to Stranocum. Go straight through Stranocum and keep going until your reach the Dry Arch bridge. Take the right hand slip road before the bridge (do not take the right turn 20m before that sign posted for Armoy) and another right and follow signs for Ballycastle.
