Folk Fest Killarney

A host of Folk musicians will descend on Killarney along with hip, alternative, independent music lovers in Ireland as Folk Fest Killarney kicks off.

Folk Fest Killarney at the INEC offers something for every festival goer from four different stages over the course of three days.

Whether it’s the comeback of a legendary supergroup, a visit from international artists, or the performances of young rising stars, each act has a common desire to keep spirits high from dusk ‘til dawn.

Folk Fest goers have a range of performances to chose from. A showcasing of the best of Kerry on the Gathering Stage, an outdoor céilí with the Tulla Céilí Band, intimate performances in the Acoustic Club and acts in the Ballroom and Main Stage.

Putting together a programme for the first Folk Fest Killarney is very exciting for everyone involved - a coming together of the best in traditional, contemporary and alternative folk, from many parts of the globe.

The festival caters for artists and audience, in a way never seen before. Rest assured, this will be one of the best musical experiences for everyone involved.

Fans will get the opportunity to watch lifelong favourite acts such as Begley & Cooney, Luka Bloom and Tinariwen, discover new artists to Ireland such as Druce & Jones or Tim Eriksen, and those relatively new to the festival scene such as locals Ríona and Bryan O’Leary.

Traditional and Folk music is a big part of our culture here in Kerry, particularly with Sliabh Luachra, an area that has generated musical legends like Johnny O'Leary only outside of the town.

Any event that generates business for the town of Killarney and County Kerry is a great boost, it also creates a positive and lively atmosphere among tourists who relish the opportunity to see prolific international musicians perform in what has to be the best and most diverse venue in the country to date, the INEC.

Arguably a line up to rival any Festival in Ireland the best of Irish and International Folk will take to the stage over three thrilling days. With a superb mix of headline grabbing acts, legendary supergoups, international artists, grass root and young rising stars, Killarney will be bursting at the seams with musical talent this July.

Food, drink and accommodation is available on site, giving a full festival feel, without being subjected to the vagaries of the Irish weather. Weekend and day tickets are available from
