Jubilee Farm

Jubilee is based at Jubilee farm in the 2 acre walled garden of Drumalis retreat and conference centre

 

A former stately home in the County Antrim port town of Larne, Drumalis has been a residence of the Sisters of the Cross and Passion Order since 1930. Despite being in a semi-urban area the site includes acres of woodland, wildflower-rich meadows and our magnificent Victorian walled garden, which has been unused for vegetable production for more than three decades due to the presence of a garden centre in it.

 

Come see us at Jubilee farm

 

We’re working within the existing footprint of the walled garden to return it to full agricultural production, while also maximising space for nature and people too.  We’re gradually developing our range of activities on-site, and hope to be open to the public on Fridays and Saturday from summer 2018, but have plenty of things going on from January 2018.
