During the summer months Ireland is a land of festivals, celebrations and events. From food festivals to music events, family festivals to active group adventures, Ireland is always a great place to be over the summer.
I love festivals - I think this affinity for celebrations is an innate part of my Irish being and Irish psyche. I even include festivals in my listing of Top Ten Reasons Why Tourists Love Ireland.
Some may think festivals are tourist traps, but I believe there is far more to a good festival, where the uniqueness of the Irish character can be discovered. Irish festival goers possess a love of stories, talk and music, and above all, a fondness for fun.
Today I'm delighted to share an infographic from the good folks at Killarney Hotels, who have taken a lot of trouble to round up a collection of wonderful events scheduled to take place in Ireland this summer.
And so, if you plan to visit Ireland this year, I hope you'll find a festival to enjoy somewhere along your way.
Slán agus beannacht!
