Looking for some great entertainment this June? All roads lead to Nenagh this summer with the first ever Nenagh CastleFest. This mid-summer festival has its roots in traditional Irish music and jazz, but has expanded to include many other genres.
The weekend kicks off with an opening night concert at Nenagh Arts Centre, followed by music sessions in a number of bars around the town. Saturday will see traditional music workshops in the morning, a family funday with live music, food and activities for all the family at The People’s Picnic in the Castle Field. Later on in the Castle Field, the highlight of the festival – internationally renowned artists Mundy, Paddy Casey and friends will take to the stage for a free open-air concert. What better way to round off a great night than to head to your favourite bar to listen to some of the best traditional musicians in the country?
Join us again on Sunday in the Castle Field for a Sunday afternoon barbeque while you listen to live music on-stage. Keep an eye on our facebook page NenaghCastlefest and on twitter @NenaghFest for more details on Historical walking tours, street-entertainment, pub trails and more.
