Here’s some interesting activities I found that are going on in August. There’s a variety of things going, and I think there something for everyone this month:
6th -- 15th -- Kilkenny Arts Festival -- This is the 37th year of the Kilkenny Arts Festival, and is probably the best one yet. Take a peek at their schedule of events. It is going to be 10 days jam packed with Irish and international music and art of all kinds.
10th -- 12th -- Puck Fair - As one of Ireland’s oldest and well, let’s say unique fairs, they have a little bit of everything during is held on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of August every year. Their programme is packed and is worth the trip to Killorglin in County Kerry.
13th -- 16th -- Roundstone Summerfest -- They have a back-up for this festival so it can go on rain or shine. Plus, most of the events are free, and who can turn down free entertainment?
21st -- 22nd Dublin Viking Festival - The programme hasn’t be announced yet, but stay tuned, because it should be announced soon. Go ahead and gather your fellow kings and warriors to prepare for the invasion of Wood Quay on the 21st and 22nd of August.
Everyone did a great job of informing me about festivities that I didn’t know about last month. So, if you know of something going on in August that we don’t have listed here, don’t hesitate to let the Truvo.ie community know about it. All you have to do it post it in the comments, and I’ll update the blog so everyone can see.
