Doolin Folk Festival
Doolin Folk Festival 2018
June 15th - 17th
Trad & Folk Music back in its natural home in County Clare
The Doolin Folk Festival, now in its 6th year, has established its place as a firm favourite on the summer festival calendar and one of the country's finest traditional and folk music gatherings.
Set in the intimate & idyllic surrounds of Hotel Doolin, between the Burren and The Cliffs of Moher, Dooli Folk Festival takes inspiration from the great festivals of the 70s and 80s like Lisdoonvarna. This year's year's lineup is the most stellar to date, with headliners including Paul Brady, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winners Lankum; Lúnasa, Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill, Iarla Ó Lionáird and Steve Cooney, as well as European festival circuit favourites Vasen, Ímar and Jiggy.
Doolin festival regulars will be familiar with the wonderful family-friendly setting which continues this year with the usual mix of great day-time events, artisan food stalls and laid-back hay-bale seating between gigs in Hotel Doolin's sunny courtyard setting.
Full lineup: Paul Brady, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, Lankum, Mary Coughlan, Lúnasa, The Fiddle Case with Luka Bloom, Moxie, Scullion, Vasen, Iarla Ó Lionáird and Steve Cooney, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Ímar, Zoe Conway & John McIntyre, Jimmy Crowley, The Maes, Cúig, Lorraine O'Briend and Terry Bingham, Eoin O'Neill, Kate Theasby, Navá, Steve Poltz
In association with RTE Radio One.
