Hello community!

I just wanted to share some thrilling updates about the Europa League Final happening this year! Some might say this is an unmissable event happening on the Island of Ireland in 2024! 😉

Where?  Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Republic of Ireland

When? May 22, 2024

Why it's special? Not only is this going to be an epic showdown between two top teams vying for glory, but it's also happening right here in Ireland's vibrant capital city, Dublin!

What's at stake? The winners will secure their spot in the highly anticipated 2024 UEFA Super Cup, where they'll face off against the champions of the UEFA Champions League. Talk about an incredible opportunity! ⚽

So mark your calendars, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the atmosphere promises to be amazing! Whether you're into football or not, this is a great experience to feel the vibe of football fans cheering, singing, and celebrating with their favourite team and players.

Hello everyone!

There are many traditional music festivals this year, and among them I would like to mention two great festivals:
  •  the first one is the Belfast TradFest. The streets of Belfast will resonate with the melodies of traditional music as the Belfast TradFest 3rd annual Winter Weekend unfolds from February 23rd to 25th. Also, there's its summer edition this July within with a week-long schedule packed with workshops and an extensive lineup of concerts, lectures, sessions, and festival clubs.
  •  the second one is the Kilkenny Tradfest. The Festival takes place between the 15th and 18th March, coinciding with St.Patrick’s weekend, and promises an abundance of excitement with gigs, ceilis, sessions, Irish dance, and more. During the weekend there will be also masterclasses and workshops at the best city's historical locations such as Kilkenny Castle Tower and Rothe House.

If you are in Belfast or Kilkenny during these times, give it a thought: the music at Irish festivals is so hoppin' and the craic is mighty!

Hi Everyone!

Amazing list of festivals here and I'd like to add another one for all the foodies and food lovers!

This April 19th-21st, Waterford Festival of Food returns to Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. This is a FREE festival with tickets being sold for particular events within the festival across the weekend. It's open to anyone and everyone and suitable for all ages.

Some highlights from this year’s programme include guided taste tours, kitchen table talks with influential people from Ireland’s food scene and beyond, high profile guest chef dining events, sustainability workshops, and pop-up experiences in unusual locations. There will also be foraging walks, food waste talks, bus tours to farms and mountains, live cooking demos, and the festival’s famous market which is Ireland’s largest outdoor market, in Dungarvan’s market square on the final day. Essentially, 3 days of amazing food, activity, atmosphere and culture to immerse in.
