Kaleidoscope is a quintessentially Irish festival. And you can’t have quintessentially Irish without the cúpla focail. We’re delighted to announce Croí na Féile will be weaving Irish language magic throughout the festival, with workshops, music, interactive events. There’s even a 50-spot campsite spesialta for Irish speaking families, with activities and a visit from a special visitor, The Irish Fairy Door’s Sióg Clódagh!

After nightfall, an Ghaeilge will take centre stage at The Big Hooley. You’ll find damhsa, craic agus ceol, with lively traditional music for and from young and old from 7pm on Saturday and Sunday night. On the line up will be Rath Chairn foursome Dó Fá Dó, the renowned Push For Porter from Kildare, young musicians from Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann also from Kildare, as well as Traditional Music Society groups from Maynooth University and University College Cork.

Cad faoi seo anois?
