To The Island is an exciting new festival taking place on Achill Island from May 3-6. This event will bring a host of live music and comedy to this magical location.
Collaborating with local people and businesses, musician and Achill Islander Graham Sweeney and prominent and Dublin-based event producer Emily O’Callaghan are putting together a fantastic line-up of performers along with music bus trails, secret gigs and surprises.
The largest island in Ireland, Achill Island sits off the coast of County Mayo and plays host to a plethora of cultural activities. Achill’s stunning natural features have sparked creativity in countless painters and performers and have provided a home for legendary Irish figures such as Pirate Queen Grace O’Malley. Today, Achill is a nationally known hotspot for seafood, scenic views and the traditional arts.
A range of activities are available on the island, including surfing on Keel Beach and trips to Grace O'Malley’s castle. Attendees have the option to camp or to stay at any of Achill’s B & Bs, where they will experience Mayo’s characteristic hospitality.
One day and weekend tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday March 22 and are limited in number. Any enquiries should be directed to [email protected]. A full line-up will be announced in the coming weeks.
