Portglenone Holiday Homes Antrim
The village of Portglenone stands on both banks of the River Bann with the largest portion of residents living on the Antrim side of the river
Always a place of importance because of its bridge over the River Bann, Portglenone was formerly known for its grass-seed market, linen factories and important salmon fishery and now home to an 18-berth marina.
Portglenone Forest Park, just outside the village, is classified as an ‘Ancient Woodland’, and has well marked nature trails, with the River Bann flowing through the forest.
There is also a memorial to the United States servicemen stationed there during world war two. The foundations of their Nissan huts can still be seen throughout the wood.
The Gig ‘n the Bann is a local cross-community Music and Dance Festival which has been held every year since 2001. It takes its name from the River Bann which flows through the village. The famous Timothy Eaton who emigrated to Canada in the last century and established the world famous Eaton Stores across Canada, worked in Portglenone.
