This festival on Aran Mór Island will either completely baffle you or make you want to up sticks and head for ‘Craggy Island” for a few days of completely off the wall madness!

The festival celebrates (if that is the right word!) the cult TV series Father Ted, and as anyone familiar with it will know that means madness, mayhem and total chaos are not just inevitable but desirable.

The event is limited to just over 100 people – knowing the words of the famous and much loved Father Ted composition “My Lovely Horse” and an undying love of tea and sandwiches are required attributes for those attending – although there is a beer garden for those who tire of tea!

This event has outgrown Craggy Island and the madness has spread to events in London (in July) and at the Edinburgh Festival (in August) so if you don’t manage to snag one of the precious tickets for the Island, there is still hope.

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.

Places are limited due to the size of the Island and in previous years tickets have been oversubscribed many times over and attendees were selected by lottery. Times have changed and now it’s a case of who gets into buy a ticket first.

Details and Location Map for Tedfest

Some years there is just one weekend, on Aranmore, others there are two, the first weekend takes place on Inishmore (Craggy Island) and the second on Inisheer (Rugged Island).

You know you want to. Go on, go on, go on!
