How would you like to pet a ferret or see them race though drain
pipes? You can do both at the Northern Ireland Countryside
Festival at Moira Demesne this year.
Ferrets of all sizes and colours will be at the two-day festival
because, believe it or not, the keeping of ferrets as both working animals and pets is one
of the fastest growing pastimes in Ireland with hundreds of
people of all ages and both genders participating. These
interesting little creatures are great fun and if handled
properly make good pets.
We know this at the Northern Ireland
Countryside festival because you tell us about it and how much
you enjoy the ferreting events. So we have organised for you a
very special Ferret World at the festival. It's an event where
everyone can "have-a-go" at ferret racing, either with your own
ferret or one picked for you from our stable of ferrets at the
Our ferret displays at the 2014 Northern Ireland Countryside
Festival will range from
ferret racing to ferret shows and of course those pet
ferrets too. Local enthusiasts will be on hand at the Ferret World
stand to answer questions, to let you handle the ferrets and
show you just how much enjoyment these wonderful animals bring.
