It’s the ultimate spot to enjoy an afternoon of live music, with acts including Medusa’s Wake, Susan O’Neill aka SON and The Bottlers. You’ll find a wide range of family-friendly activities too, including interactive Irish dancing lessons, face painting and an introduction to the Irish language. The celebrations include two handy bar and food stalls, so you can grab a cold pint of the ‘Black Stuff’ while you take in the festivities.
