Looking for a great session? Sessions will be happening over the weekend, so keep your ear to the ground! The Grand Hotel, with its open fires and cozy front bar, is the ideal spot for some mighty sessions over the weekend. Alternatively, check out the sessions that will get going in the Village stage bar this coming year !
This wonderful historic feature of Portarlington has a history of hosting bands and this year it will again rekindle that spirit to host some unique festival performances. Across the weekend pipers, drummers and singers will be performing in the Rotunda, welcoming all to this year’s festival. The Rotunda will again be the starting point for The Gathering, which sees singers and musicians form a twilight procession that weaves its way through the festival site to various concerts. Not to be missed !
National Celtic Festival @ Portarlington is a cultural bank of Celtic talent, focused within a one-kilometre radius. If history repeats itself, 2017 will be another mighty year. Whether it’s the enchanting sounds of bagpipes looming over the coastal shores, the beat of the bodhran, or the chance to pop into a poetry recital that draws you to the festival, you’ll be sure to enjoy the ‘Craic’. The rich deposits of Celtic culture and the dream of a creamy pint of Guinness is a recipe for success year after year.
So… Save the date for next year’s festival, 09 – 12 June.
