August Bank Holiday Weekend, 3rd, 4th and 5th. Dungarvan

Dungarvan Summer Music Festival is three days of exciting and groundbreaking music across the three days of the August Bank Holiday weekend, in three different venues around the picturesque harbour town.

World-renowned uilleann piper David Power is both the driving force behind the festival and its curator, and he has put together a wonderful line-up of Irish music that is eminently forward-looking but grown from traditional roots.

Friday 3rd:


On Friday night legendary trad group Lúnasa will bring their instrumental brilliance and cutting edge arrangements of Irish trad to the SGC Theatre at 8pm



Saturday 4th:
