For those looking for a more cultural activity

Festivals is something than Ireland is festival from music to food to sport or even farming, the summer months are littered with all types of events. Here we will take you through some of the highlights that we think you can't miss.

Ireland's link with festivals dates back hundreds of years when whole neighbourhoods would meet at the "crossroads" and sing, dance and play music maybe with the odd alcoholic drink involved too. Each part of Ireland has its own iconic festival, in the west the Galway Oyster festival is world renowned, in the south Lisdoonvarna has one old the oldest single events in the world with 40,000 plus eligible farmers descending into this small rural town. In the midlands the Oxegen music festivals attracts revellers from all over Ireland and abroad to a local racecourse to enjoy a rock, pop and dance festival.
