This festival is an annual 2 day family event in the estate of Westport House, in County Mayo. Beautiful castle and garden that include a Pirate Adventure Park. In its 400 acre estate there will be 2 stages (one of them is the Roisin Dubh Stage), on site camping, beer tents, wine bars,  and the food area, the “Best of the West”.

Headlining acts at the festival will include Elvis Costello and Imelda May with other confirmed acts including The Stunning, Alabama 3, Damien Dempsey, Ryan Sheridan, Delorentos and the cuban Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. It’s quite a long list of bands for the two days, look:

‘Best in the West’ food village come to Westport Festival. An array of food producers will present the most exciting and vibrant foods the West has to offer; from Clew Bay Oysters and local Killary mussels, taken from the sea the day before to local Connemara Mountain Lamb infused with Garlic and Rosemary.

The Friendly Food Farm will return again this year combining cookery demonstrations, led by Irish chef Derry Clarke, with audience viewing, participation and interaction.

In the Comedy Tent, on Saturday, one of our favourites: Reginal D Hunter

Tickets for 1 day are 75 euros, or 130 for Saturday and Sunday.
