Kilkenny will resonate this March with a spectacular line up of talent performing during the Kilkenny Tradfest 2019. In its 7th year we will see acts from Altan to the Kilfenora Ceili Band. Kilkenny Tradfest is a feast for traditional music lovers and a celebration of all things Irish. From 15th – 18th March, immerse yourself in a rich programme of events with workshops, masterclasses and acts like Teada, Scullion and Iarla O’Lionaird to enjoy. More acts are being added to an already fantastic schedule of performances.

Wrapped around St Patrick’s Festival, why not come along with all of the family and take in the Kilkenny St.Patrick’s Day Parade. Line the streets to support local groups and be entertained by their performances as they parade the streets of the city.

 

In keeping with the rest of the globe, Kilkenny is going green. It’s good to be Irish!
