Feasts & Festivals

aka Féis agus Fleadh (say that fesh ahgus flah) these are more than parties but celebrations aiming for epic scale with mighty cráic. See also the fun subcategory of céildhs.

Body, Mind, and Spirit star
Ireland is often called a "magical" place. However you define it, there´s more to Ireland than meets the eye. Reach out and be touched.

Christmas Around the World star

Christmas Day in Ireland star

Christmas in Ireland star
An Irish Christmas is both holy day and holiday. It's a warm, friendly season that lasts from Advent 'til Little Christmas.

Irish Halloween or Samhain star
Halloween, or Samhain, used to be the Celtic New Year. It is still an important festival in the Irish calendar, warranting, like St. Patrick's Day, a bank holiday. The ancient traditions always get a modern twist!

Mothers' Day an Irish High Holiday star
Remember Mother's Day and celebrate yours and all the mothers in your life!

St. Patrick's Day star
St. Patrick's Day is a welcome break in Lenten abstinence. This national holiday is also a Roman Catholic holy day of obligation. So before the merry making there is prayer.

St. Patrick, Shamrocks, and Irish Tenors star
On St. Patrick, shamrocks, and a great Irish tenor, John McCormack.

Summer Starts with Bealtaine star
What was originally a pre-Christian agricultural and fertility festival, Bealtaine is the Irish name for the month of May, kicking off the flurry of summer festivals and events calendar. Bealtaine celebrates creativity now especially for the over-50s in the population.

Understanding the Celtic Calendar star
The Celtic calendar, or Wheel of the Year as it is sometimes called, is also reflected in modern Irish culture. The old Cross Quarter Days still give their Irish names to the months of February, May, August and November.

Waterford Crystal Ball “Hope for Fellowship” star
Waterford´s famous crystal and New York´s Times square share New Year´s Eve in the U.S. "Hope for Fellowship" is the theme for 2006. Please God.
