A Great family Day Out

Evening Concert Ticket Not required

On top of a brilliant lineup of live acts, we’ve also got an amazing lineup for our Daytime Events, at this year’s Folly Festival, for Saturday July 9th! From the calmness and tranquility of a Mountain Walk, Mindfulness Sessions, Vintage Car Show, and an Art Exhibition, to live music, with a Trad Session, Trad Workshops, Garda Band, and The Dooley Brothers!
There’s much more in between, such as an Artisan Food & Craft Fair, Cookery Demonstration, Bord Bia Artisan Butcher & Barbecue, and all can be washed down with drinks from The Rockshore Bar!!!
The kids will just love Nancy’s Yard, which is full of activities and entertainment and costs just €5, and the pooches are more than welcome too, and may even win a prize at our Fun Dog Show!
Please remember you do not need a ticket for our evening concerts to attend our Daytime Events!
