Feakle Festival

30 years ago a small festival started in the village of Feakle, County Clare. Feakle is at the centre of traditional music in Ireland. That small start has now brought us to our 30th year, with visitors from all over the world coming to a festival that now has international recognition.

Since it's humble beginnings, Feakle International Festival of Traditional Music has brought many of the finest musicians and performers to our small village which is at the very heart of Traditional Music in Ireland.

For a few days each August the village becomes a very special place where the best in traditional music can be heard, songs sung, dances danced and friends meet up again for another 'Feakle Festival'. We're pleased to announce that once again we have some great artists lined for you at Feakle 2017.

Artists appearing in 2017 include: Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill who will once again be performing in the church.
Updates on the other artists appearing will be added shortly.

We do hope that you'll be able to join us in Feakle this August for some unforgettable musical adventures!
