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.
