Groove Festival 2023

For information about exact dates and arrangements for this event during the COVID 19 restrictions please visit the website

First held in 2013, Groove Festival is a family event combining music, food, and fun activities in the grounds of Kilruddery House – a wonderful place to visit at any time.

There is music on two stages, with an eclectic mix spanning a number of decades too – it’s well planned to appeal to both younger festival goers and parents.

As with most festivals food has an important role, with restaurant pop ups, street food and gourmet producers all involved. A little away from the main action, the Thrive offers a quiet reprieve with yoga and fitness classes, wellness workshops and inspirational talks.

Family activities include festival favourites zorbing, face painting and the Killruddery petting zoo, as well as special events which include storytelling, grow your own workshops and circus skills.

Date and details for 2023 subject to confirmation.
