Nestled on the western banks of Lough Derg, Mountshannon is one of

Irelands most beautiful villages, and has an ancient monastic settlement

just off shore, on Inis Cealtra, or Holy Island as it is known locally.

The local festival has been running since 1995.

Each year brings a new collection of exhibitions, performances and

workshops to inspire and entertain both locals, and visitors to the area.

Rooted in the visual arts, the ethos of the Festival is to create access to

works and exhibitions that would not be easy to find in a rural area, while at

the same time stimulating the creation of works and performances from

within the local community.

There is also an emphasis on families, and we aim to create a fun filled

festival, with water sports, live music, puppet shows, a dog show and more.​
