About the Festival

We were thrilled to be announced as this years OVERALL WINNER of the Kerry Community Awards held in Killarney on the 16th October. These awards reward and encourage community efforts to improve our social, economic, cultural and environmental quality of life.

Féile na Bealtaine aspires to build on the rich tradition of arts and culture that exists on the Dingle peninsula and to extend and broaden our artistic horizons – above all Féile hopes to entertain and to invigorate.

The festival’s aims are to highlight and promote Dingle’s traditions and bilingual culture and to introduce the arts and artists from other parts of Ireland and the world to the people of Corca Dhuibhne.

This year we are celebrating our 21st anniversary. The festival will kick off on Thursday 29th April – 4th May.  As always, there will be events for all tastes and age-groups. There will be street theatre, children’s events, music of all types, poetry recitals, art exhibitions, short films, long films, comedy acts, theatre, art exhibitions as well as a poetry trail. The festival will culminate on Bank Holiday Monday with a political symposium and of course the annual sheep-dog trials.

The Irish year was divided into two parts: Ó Samhain go Bealtaine is ó Bealtaine go Samhain. Bealtaine – Good Fire, connected with the sun’s warmth and the consequent fertility of crops and cattle. We hope you can join us this May Bank Holiday weekend in welcoming the summer to the Dingle Peninsula and in sampling the exquisite cultural events our festival has to offer.
