A full week of rural shenanigans including (but not limited to) Charades Competitions, Crab Fishing, Historic Walks, Live Music, and Ballydehob’s infamous Turnip Races.
A celebration of local maritime heritage, the annual Gathering of the Boats has grown into a much anticipated summer event with scores of families meeting the flotilla of working boats and other traditional sailing vessels into Ballydehob Quay. Music and Barbecue compliment the spectacle.
Established in 2009, the Fit-up Theatre Festival is based on the original fit-ups of the 1950’s and was developed to provide rural communities, where there is a lack of accessibility to professional theatre, an opportunity to sample some of the wealth and talent professional theatre has to offer.
