Welcome to The Killinchy Beekeepers Association
We are an Association of Beekeepers in the Killinchy District and surrounding area of County Down in Northern Ireland.
Our aim is to promote the craft of beekeeping by providing the education necessary to maintain happy healthy colonies of honey bees and fellowship among beekeepers.
We meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month, providing an informative and entertaining programme of talks and events throughout the year.
If you are not a beekeeper yet, we hope this site will help you become better informed about bees and beekeeping and be impressed and amazed (like the rest of us) by all that beekeeping entails.
Please feel free to contact us for any enquiries you may have.
