Venue: Kilkenny

Due to current Government restrictions in place, please check with the organiser of the event in advance.

Kilkenny Arts Festival is a multi-disciplinary arts festival, located in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East, which takes place annually over ten days in August. With a world class programme that includes classical music, theatre, literature, opera, world music and visual arts and over a long history of more than 47 years, the festival has made its way both into the heart of the local community and into the very fabric of Kilkenny, where the city’s medieval streets and squares provide the stage for the Festival’s annual gathering of globally celebrated musicians, performers, writers, theatre makers and artists.

Undoubtedly the true magic of this festival lies in its ability to transform Kilkenny’s historic churches, castles, courtyards, gardens and the dramatic 13th Century St. Canice’s Cathedral through the beauty of music and the power of words. Against this backdrop, within the local, easy-going community of Kilkenny, daily chance encounters become a regular feature between festivalgoers and world-renowned stars.
