Welcome to the 8th consecutive year of our multi-disciplinary festival which takes place in quirky and exciting venues across the town of Kinsale.

This year we offer a range of insightful, challenging and unique art pieces associated with the 2024 theme – Mealladh na Mara (Allure of the Sea).

The theme reflects our place by the ocean and speaks to our mission to showcase recognised and emerging talents across a range of artistic disciplines. Our link to our Irish culture and heritage is a consistent source of inspiration and we hope that you will find much to enjoy in our exciting 2024 programme.

Headline acts this year include singer and songwriter Loah, Author, Journalist and Booker nominee Audrey McGee. Sheila Flitton of Banshees of Inisherin fame heads up our theatre programme and we welcome film maker Paul O’Callaghan whose newest movie “Our Blue World” is set to air on Netflix next season. World famous Joseph Walsh studios also continues to support our annual programme.

These names reflect the high quality inherent in all our acts but Allow us to “allure” you to discover the full richness of the 2024 offering in the Programme Tab.
