  • Hello and welcometo the third Skibbereen Arts Festival!!!For many years West Cork has been a haven for artistic talent and is recognised as being one of Europes cultural hotspots. Skibbereen once again pays homage this year to this vibrant fabric of our community that is the arts. In times like these, people need and appreciate the facets of the arts more than ever.

    Following on the success of our second festival last year, we have again managed to attract some very exciting events for Skibbereen this year. As well as the many world-class artists and events coming to town, there will also be many cultural and sporting events taking place and a very special Skibbereen Childrens Festival. There is something for everyone in this years festival no matter what your taste may be.

    Special thanks to all the volunteers whove helped in any way in the organising of this years event, to our sponsors and funders without whom this simply couldnt happen and to the people and businesses of Skibbereen for their continued support.

    A special word of thanks to Reverend Bruce Hayes and the select vestry of Abbeystrewry Church for allowing us to use their beautiful venue for select events.

    Bainig sult as na File!
