Ireland's Best Summer Festivals

The festival season has arrived and what a season it looks set to be!  Us Irish just love partying and will throw up any old excuse to warrant a celebration!  There is an array of micro-festivals happening across Ireland over the coming months, with almost every small town in the country flying flags for some reason or another.  I will be giving you a heads up on these as they arise.  For some of the larger festivals it is likely you will need to book tickets and/or accommodation in advance.  To help you coordinate your plans I have put together the below schedule for Ireland's Biggest and Bestest Festivals! Descriptions of the festivals below will follow over the coming weeks so watch this space!

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog, not at all, home is where the heart is but once your blog focuses on Ireland it's ok you don't have to terminate it :) Great festival list there, I hope to make it to the fleadh cheoil and sea sessions. If I go I might post some photographs on my blog. Keep up the good work
