The Russell Festival Weekend
Doolin, Co. Clare
22 February - 26 February 2024
Family friendly
This Irish Traditional Music festival is held in Doolin, Co.Clare in February annually. It is a celebration of music, song, dance and storytelling, and also a remembrance event for the Russell family, world-famous traditional musicians from the area.

The festival features a variety of events for all ages including concerts, recitals, CD launches, lectures, workshops, kids sessions, pubs sessions and a tribute to the Russell Brothers at Doolin Graveyard following Sunday mass.

In 2024, the 30th festival will be held on the last weekend in February. All events feature a host of local talent and concerts include invited guests of national and international acclaim in the Traditional Irish Music world.

The weekend festival is one of the earliest of the year, with a hint of nostalgia as visitors and locals alike revisit the “heyday” of Doolin in the 1960s/70s in music sessions in the pubs and hotels.
