What better way to kick-start the kids' summer holidays than at Newmarket Summer Festival. The festival has marked the arrival of summer for many generations in this North Cork town and is one of the last traditional week long festivals that were once common throughout Cork.

The festival programme offers a wonderful range of activities for the whole family with many of the old favourites such as a family fun picnic day, walkabout quiz, ladies night and an enchanted evening to name but a few. Not to mention a world class funfair open in the town park each night! An exciting fireworks display brings the action packed ten days to a close and is a spectacle not to be missed.
