Important News. Please Note:

Organisers of traditional Irish music festival Dingle Tradfest have indicated the festival will not be staged this year.

The annual music festival has been running in Dingle town in September since 2011.

In a statement, organisers indicated the festival will not proceed as it did not receive funding from the Arts Council and regrettably as a consequence running the Tradfest would not be feasible.

They added while some events, concerts and sessions will take place throughout the year, Dingle Tradfest in its current format will not go ahead.

Organisers extended their thanks to all involved in the festival for their support.
