Celebrate our national patron, Saint Patrick, with colourful, whimsical costumes and floats, vintage tractors, antique cars, and members of our volunteer emergency services. A delightful day for recognising heritage and love of place.

Each May Bank Holiday weekend sees over 40 performances that range from big name concerts to small workshops; from lively pub gigs to intimate side shows and a healthy dose of fringe attractions to compliment.

Very popular with the two-steppin’ crowd, this festival features dynamic dance hall concerts, free gigs in bars, and hilarious theatrical hi-jinx. Great Craic altogether.
