We Irish love our festivals. Every town in the country has a special festival or event that celebrates it’s community, it’s culture and it’s heritage. Whether you are a music junkie, a sporting fanatic or an art aficionado, there is a festival for you. So whatever time of year it is, and whatever your age or your interests, let us inspire you to partake in one of the great cultural celebrations that take place across our gorgeous country.
