Ever wonder what it would be like to live on an Irish Island? Dive into a unique opportunity to experience island life only open to a limited number of visitors. This festival celebrates the traditional skills and crafts still practised as part of daily life on Inis Oírr, the smallest of the Aran Islands. The weekend will begin on Friday evening with an opening social and exhibition of local craftwork. On Saturday and Sunday, locals will share their skills and knowledge through a variety of intimate workshops. Each participant will get a taste of three aspects of island culture, including Aran knitting, willow basket making, séan-nós dancing, seaweed cookery and dry stonewall building. There will be ample time for visitors to enjoy the many other activities on Inis Oírr, such as traditional music sessions, pony and trap tours, and scenic walks taking in views of the Cliffs of Moher and the Connemara mountains. Both English and Irish speakers are welcomed, and there will be plenty of chance to practise the "cúpla focail" for those who so choose. Packages include three workshops, a lunch and two nights B&B. Leave your car and cares behind; Inis Oírr is easily accessible by ferry from Rosseveal or flights from Inverin, Co. Galway, or by ferry from Doolin, Co Clare. Spaces are limited and early registration is recommended. Beidh fáilte romhaibh go léir!
