Fleadh Cheoil

Late August
The Fleadh Cheoil (Festival of Music) is a national festival that has been promoting Irish traditional music and dance through competition for more than 50 years. It takes place in late August, although the location changes from year to year. The festival also features less formal music sessions and street performances, as well as Irish art, parades, and pageants.
