Festival of Curiosity

Cape Clear Island International Storytelling Festival

Cape Clear is Ireland’s southernmost inhabited island situated 8 miles off the coast of Baltimore in West Cork. The stunning scenery, folklore and uniqueness of the island’s flora and fauna truly make Cape Clear a place apart.

The Cape Clear Island International Storytelling Festival is now in its 25th year, and has become one of the most renowned festivals in the world storytelling calendar. Each year we invite some of the most accomplished tellers from around the world, and also present the best Irish exponents of this most ancient of art forms to a world audience.

There are tonnes of activities for all ages, and this festival is bound to keep the kids talking all summer!

This year’s performers include Bill Harley, Ruth Kirkpatrick, Diarmuid O Drisceoil, Kamini Ramachandran and Colum Sands.

All Together Now

2 August – 4 August

The festival, which was the brainchild of John Reynolds, will take place in Co Waterford over the August bank holiday weekend. This new Irish music festival sprung onto the scene in 2018 offering festival-goers an indie music event which is mid-scale (15,000 attendees) indie, artsy, chill. And, from its debut year, we can say it succeeded tremendously, already being considered one of the better Irish music festivals out there.

Performances by The National, Patti Smith, Hot Chip, Bombay Bicycle Club, José González and Tourist.


Galway Arts Festival

15 July – 28 July

As a headquarter of culture (awarded the title of 2020 European Capital of Culture) where better to host one of Ireland’s best arts festivals?

This world-renowned arts festival will take place on 15-28 July 2019 with an array of performances, installations, launches, exhibits, experiences and events.

Simply put: this is not to be missed.

Another Love Story

16 August – 18 August

An annual weekend celebration of music, conversation, food and fun set in and around the grounds of Killyon Manor in County Meath.

This super small-scale August music festival is the top “add to your agenda” this coming summer.

Set on the site of a stunning stately manor, this low-key festival has a great inclusive environment and is essentially a glorified summer fair for those looking to be immersed in arts, culture and music with like-minded people.
