Fastnet Maritime & Folk Festival
June 16th – 18th
This music festival brings folk artists from England and Ireland to Ballydehob each June for a jovial mix of contemporary and traditional music with a maritime twist. Coordinator Dick Miles involves the community with local schools providing maritime-themed displays and participating in a gala performance in Ballydehob Community Hall. Other highlights include the endless stream of respected folk musicians that inconspicuously amble through the village, the popular Sing-arounds and spontaneous sessions.
Supported by IMRO, Ballydehob Community Council, Cork County Council and the local community. The Ballydehob Fastnet Maritime Folk Festival takes place every June.
