Now in its fifth year, the Leenane Autumnal Festival celebrates all things autumnal, with a focus on traditional food, arts and crafts from this exceptionally beautiful part of Ireland. Visitors can enjoy browsing through the country market, showcasing the absolute best of local crafts and produce - try before you buy from a delicious range of foodstuffs, some cooked fresh on the premises. There will be arts and crafts, with demonstrations including basket weaving, straw work, sugan ropework, butter making, jewellery and much more to both entertain and educate. Using the finest traditional ingredients, chefs from top hotels showcase their cooking skills over the course of the weekend. Watch out for this year's mystery celebrity chef! And for budding Jamies and Nigellas there will be the Children's Cooking Academy. Don't' miss out on great traditional Irish music from some of the most talented musicians in the Leenane area; fantastic guided walks with an emphasis on foraging and wild foods ... discover the larder in your back garden. Festival takes place from 10.30am to 5.30pm on both days. See website for a taste of previous festivals plus even more of the exciting events lined up for this great day out!
