Come have a ball at Big House Festival - Ireland's first ever site-specific festival in Ireland's only true palace - Castletown House in Celbridge, Co. Kildare. Join in a weekend of celebration that continues a 300-year tradition of arts and entertainment in the house and grounds of this beautiful country estate.
The festival features the best of Irish and international music, spectacle, theatre, dance and visual art as well as a range of other exciting, fun and family-friendly events.
Each day features over 50 events (all included in a day ticket). There’s a fixed programme for the entire three days but you’ll also get to enjoy a number of unique performances each evening from the likes of Jerry Fish (3rd August), LAPD (5th August).
All the events in this boutique three-day festival are tailor-made for the house and rolling parklands of Castletown. Discover unexpected entertainment in every imaginable corner of the estate - from the grand ballroom, to the ancient woodlands, to the lush meadows. Big House is a tonic for the senses, a weekend of happy accidents, and a place of truly surprising cultural encounters.
