With countless activities planned for the 2019 festival, make sure you fit in as much as you can, but most importantly, get out into the city centre in your best greenery for the sheer spectacle that is 2019's St Patrick’s Day Parade on Thursday, March 17th.



Connemara Mussel Festival

April 2019   Venue: Tullycross

If you're looking for an event with more mussels than Arnold Schwarzenegger, it is time that you went west to Connemara for their annual Mussel Festival.

Follow the scent of salty sea air all the way to the coast, where local foodies and visitors from further afield will be munching on the fruits of the sea as they sit in the sand, contemplating the vastness of the ocean at this point, the westernmost edge of Europe.


Beerfest Killarney

May 2019   Venue: INEC Killarney

You won't be the only yellow belly at this annual celebration of barley and hops at the INEC Killarney come May.

Yellow Belly Brewery is the name of one of the many brewers that will descend on Killarney with barrels of golden deliciousness and coal-black stout. Mountain Man will be crawling down from its perch in Wicklow and The Wicklow Wolf Brewing Co will be on the prowl.

These various breweries will be putting their best new craft-mixtures up for consideration to see who rules the roost in 2019.



June 2019   Venue: Phoenix Park

Ireland’s largest gardening, food and family festival, Bloom, comes to the Phoenix Park this June bank holiday weekend. The eagerly anticipated and spectacular five-day event showcases exquisite gardens from the very best of Ireland’s landscape gardeners and designers.

With over 100 Irish food produce contributors, as well exhibitions from top floral artists, experts on-hand for advice, children's activities and floral display demonstrations, Bloom 2019 has something for everyone.


Galway International Arts Festival

Galway International Arts Festival is the festival of extraordinary experiences - a creative collision of performance, music, visual art, theatre and spectacle.

Whether turning a small Irish city on its head for two weeks, taking work on an international tour, or being a forceful year-round presence, every experience at the Galway International Arts Festival is an unforgettable encounter.

Rooted in the seaside city of Galway, the festival invites passionate folks from near and far to join the fun, and maybe even unlock a little creativity along the way.


Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019

 August 2019   Venue: Various locations around Kilkenny City

Kilkenny Arts Festival was originally founded in 1974 by a group of classical music enthusiasts. In recent years, the festival has broadened its programme to include theatre & dance, classical music, street, literature and visual art and crafts.

Underpinning the presentation of events is the commitment to bring work to Kilkenny that would not be seen outside the festival context, and a desire to commission and produce new work from Ireland and abroad. Every year, for 10 days in August, Kilkenny comes alive with a feast of artistic entertainment for all.


Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2019

Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is a huge annual celebration of Ireland's rich and vibrant cultural traditions, featuring a range of events for anyone with an interest in traditional music, singing and dancing.

For one week every August, the very best of traditional talent from all over Ireland and the world comes together to meet, to compete, but, most importantly, to celebrate all that is best in Irish music song and dance.


Rose of Tralee International Festival

The Rose of Tralee International Festival is one of Ireland's largest and longest running festivals, celebrating 60 years in 2019.

We booked Keltic Irish Tours in July 2016 for a 10 day tour around the whole country plus Northern Ireland. Dominic arranged our B&Bs, told us so much about the history, culture, and people of Ireland, and provided services over and above what we expected! He took us to places we chose based on our interest in ancient sites, castles, battle sites, land formations, etc. and to some places he knew about but we didn't. I highly recommend Keltic Irish Tours, if you really want to experience Ireland and its people!
