Festivals & Events
Festivals, street carnivals, celebrations of music and art - all can be found throughout the year in Beara. Of course, don't forget the famous Ring of Beara Cycle that brings people from far and wide to enjoy the many delights of Beara, both on the bike and in the many restaurants and bars!a
The Jim Dowling Uilleann Pipe and Trad Festival takes place every year in Glengarriff around the 3rd week in June. This festival has grown from its humble beginnings in 2012 to what is is today, one of the finest line-ups of traditional Irish musicians you will find at any festival around the country. Taking place in the pubs, hotels and restaurants around the village of Glengarriff, you will never have to far to travel to get to the music, whether one of the bigger concerts and the more informal sessions that take place right throughout the weekend. There are also special events and workshops that also take place around the village, so something for everyone.
The road winds ahead toward another destination, another adventure. Through rock and rush, from sea to sky, let Beara take you on a voyage of discovery.
