Festivals & Events in Ireland
In every city, town and village in Ireland there will be a festival happening somewhere throughout the year. In fact, most cities, towns and villages will have organised several events, but with different themes. The truth is we love festivals!
Music, dance, Céilis, food, writing, Jazz, traditional, cultural, heritage, film, there are any number and types of festivals occurring in every county in Ireland.
So why do we love festivals so much? Well, it is the fun element and the chance to celebrate things that we enjoy and love to do. Sure, it is a great way to catch up and chat to friends, family and visitors to the area.
For visitors, it is a chance to mix with the local community and enjoy the entertainement, banter and craic. It's a chance to make new friends along the way. A festival really makes a holiday, with it's the carnival atmosphere, relaxed vibe and best of all, it is an occasion for all the family to enjoy. Festivals in Ireland are geared to appeal to the whole family and there is always something taking place for the young and the not so young!
www.discoveirelnad.ie has an excellent listing of all the festivals and outdoor events that will take place throughout the year. If you haven’t attended a festival before, then it is never too late. A good idea is to choose your festival and then build your holiday around the event. Make sure you book where you will be staying in advance to ensure you get the accommodation of choice.
