About Festivals in Ireland

Festivals in Irland are bountiful. From music, all the way to capturing wild goats, there's something that's sure to please everyone. Irland music festivals are out of this world! Sea Sessions Surf and Music Festival for example, is a three day fest bursting at the seams with great music, and activities galore. The accommodations at this music festival are plentiful, and include surf lodges, guest houses, nearby hotels, and the Sea Sessions campsite. While festival goers enjoy the music, they can also watch an awesome surf competition, which brings in the biggest names in surfing, from across Europe.

If a good laugh is needed, Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, is sure to provide it. This laugh fest is held in the beautiful city of Kilkenny, and showcases the best in both Irish and International comedians. Improv Fest Ireland is another comedic festival, with fun improv shows, storytelling, and so much more.

Since there's a list of Irland events, several miles long, of course there would be a "capture the goat" event somewhere in that long list. Visit the annual Puck Fair, where every year, a group of people venture out into the woods to capture a wild goat. The goat is then crowned "King Puck", by the Queen, a local schoolgirl. The three day event is filled with family friendly fun, including street performers, concerts, and parades.
