The best folk music festival in Ireland is nearly upon us, and it's announced a fantastic line-up.

Folkfest Killarney will take place this summer between 24th-26th July, and its line-up a superb mix of headline grabbing acts, legendary supergroups, international artists, grass root and young rising stars. If you're up for a bit of folk, there's nowhere else to be this summer.

Friday night kicks off with Moving Hearts & special Guests, The Unthanks, Luka Bloom and Fiddlers Bid, while Saturday’s jam packed schedule sees over twelve acts including Begley and Cooney, Lost Brothers, Lynched, Aldoc, Druce & Jones.

Sunday’s line up is guaranteed folk from dusk ‘til dawn, with Mícheál O Súilleabháin, Paddy Glackin, Martin Hayes & Iarla Ó’ Lionáird with Steve Cooney, Moxie, Julie Fowlis all on board to close out the final day of the festival, so it's fair to say it'll go out with a bang.
