UK Folk Festivals - Ireland

Folk Music Festivals in Ireland

The music at Ireland's festivals is lively, and foot-tappingly contagious. These guys and girls just love their folk music. And the Guiness too. Pipes, fiddles, and enthusiasm are a certainty.

We have not differentiated between Northern Ireland and Eire - not for some political reason, but just for our own convenience. Music is music, wherever it is played, so just enjoy it.

We have now updated for 2022 festivals, but if you see one that is missing, let us know. Remember, we can't check every ticket price, unfortunately, as some are not listed until closer to the event, so we advise you to check the prices yourself.

It's a festival about guitars - the clue's in the name. So fair bit of acoustic stuff.

A celebration of the guitar. It is not starch collared or stuffy nosed, from virtuosos.

The Festival is run by a small not for profit organisation of music lovers and we are very proud of the rich, relaxed, educational, exciting & artistic environment our festival creates in our beautiful seaside town.

For the duration of our festival our whole town is the stage with performances & events happening in all manner of venue from the local schools & library to the bars & butcher shops!
