Féile Bríde is a wonderful week long celebration to honour Ireland's most beloved female saint, St. Brigid of Kildare. The week is a mixture of reflective and fun events, there is something for everyone. A warm welcome awaits you in Co. Kildare.

The Féile has its roots in an International Peace Conference organised by AFRI and the Brigidine Sisters in 1993. The conference remains a core part of Féile Bríde today.

The Féile begins on the 31st of January with a candlelight pilgrimage to St Brigid’s Well. Lighting the Hill of Allen, Sacred Dance, Cross Weaving, Customs and Traditions, Celtic Lecture and Family Fun events take place throughout the week. Visitors both Irish and international attend throughout the week.

Kildare Library, Kildare Heritage Centre, Kildare Education Centre, Into Kildare and others collaborate in the Féile.
