This music and arts festival is small by festival standards with a limit to of just 5000 tickets, which makes for a fun and friendly atmosphere. Fans consider it to be the best boutique festival in Ireland and the organisers work hard to keep it good, both with an always excellent music line up and the range of other events that make it special.
The range of music is diverse and with 5 covered stages of various sizes there’s always at least one act on that you’ll enjoy. As well as the live music, popular areas include the Silent Disco, Comedy Tent, Spoken Word area and the ever lively Bier Halle.
Date and details for 2020 subject to confirmation.

It all takes place at Ballinwillin House, a deer farm, just outside Mitchelstown, at other times an excellent and highly rated place to stay.
It’s a great venue which manages to stay fairly dry underfoot (and under tent) even if it rains, a not impossible occurrence even in August! If for any reason you want to stray away from the festival for a few hours, there is plenty to do in the locality – a visit to Mitchelstown Cave is especially recommended.
