ELEVEN YEARS OF FANTASTIC TRAD MUSIC, SONG & DANCE!

We are gearing up for another epic Kilkenny Tradfest!
Our eleventh festival promises to be the best yet, with a line-up packed full of both trad legends and young blood. The Festival takes place between the 15th and 18th March, coinciding with St.Patrick’s weekend, and capitalises on the unique strength of Kilkenny’s hospitality and creative arts-culture to deliver an event which is truly unique and steeped in heritage. 
Kilkenny has so many wonderful pubs and venues, too numerous to mention, so our best advice would be to book a ticket for an evening gig and hit the Trad Trail early in the day.
If you get lost, just follow the sound of the Music!
