5 Festivals In June Not To Miss
Festival season is upon us and with every year this brings Hunter wellies, Penneys tents that aren’t waterproof, dancing till all hours and lots of food and drink! We’re spoilt for choice in Ireland from day festivals to weekend long fun up and down the country, here’s the 5 we won’t miss this June.
1. Forbidden Fruit – Bank Holiday Weekend
June Bank Holiday weekend brings the annual Forbidden Fruit festival to Dublin and there are still some tickets left! It’s one of the best day/weekend ticketed festivals in our fair city with this years line up seeing Fat Boy Slim and Wu Tang Clan take the stage. There’s plenty of tents to hop between and food stalls to choose from. PS. Having a go of the swinging merry-go-round is a must!
2. Taste of Dublin – 11th-14th
This year sees the 10 year anniversary of the Taste festival in Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens. It’s always a brilliant weekend of sampling some of the best culinary delights that Dublin has to offer. It’s the best place to try those restaurants that may be a little out of your price range, or the places that have been on your to-try list for a while.
3. Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival – 12th-14th
If you’re a lover of the soulful sounds of the blues, then this weekend of music in one of Irelands best tiny towns is for you. Musicians from all over the world will come and serenade for the weekend – the craic will be mighty in Westport!
4. Sea Sessions Surf & Music Festival – 19th-21st
Donegal’s biggest festival draws crowds to the beach for a weekend of surf-watching and music. This years line up includes the soulful Seasick Steve, the indie Riptide Movement and Maverick Sabre. It’s chilled out, outdoorsy vibe wins us over every year.

5. Body & Soul – 19th-21st
Ballinlough Castle in Westmeath becomes a home for the weekend for the creatively minded, free-spirited folk. From a masquerade ball to decadent dining in an Indian tent, this is far more than just a music festival. It’s a great place for a family weekend or some chilled out bohemian vibes, definitely one of the best Ireland has to offer.
