Boyle Arts Festival is a magnificent festival gem with an emphasis on small, intimate events in historical and architecturally interesting buildings. Blossoming into an annual 10 day event, it has built a significant reputation, earning it a place as one of Ireland's best celebrations of the arts each summer.
While music and art continue to be the cornerstones on which the festival established its reputation, other events catered for include drama, film, literature and storytelling, comedy, singers nights and street theatre and an appealing mix of workshops and childrens programmes. In recent years local art exhibitions, pop-up galleries and craft trails have been incorporated into the town to utilise vacant premises and truly enliven a spirit of community and creativity.
Making art accessible to all, Boyle Arts Festival is renowned for punching well above its weight and offering festival goers superb value for money.
