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'. Feakle 2017 is over and we'll be back in 2018 for our 31st year..
Artists who appeared in 2017 included:
Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill

Mary MacNamara, Sorcha Costelloe and Geraldine Cotter
Danny O’Mahony and Liz Kane
