One of the oldest outdoor recreations in Ballina has to be the hugely popular Car Treasure Hunt. This year, our Official Ballina Salmon Festival Car Treasure Hunt is taking place on Friday July 13th from Rouses Bar on Pearse street, with cars departing between 6pm and 8pm.
This event is ideal for all ages and definitely a family one too, although be prepared for a few squabbles along the way! The route will take you on a trip of our rural highways and byways in search of answers to somewhat crypticish clues … For our visitors, there is no better way to get to know the area intimately – and you may even stumble upon a few hidden treasures that aren’t listed on your sheet!
On return, why not enjoy the traditional surroundings of this cosy, welcoming and nostalgic pub, complete with its own grocery shop, and a fantastic range of locally produced beers and spirits.
A great, fun event, with plenty of banter!
