Event Details

Sadly in line with latest measures announced by the Government of Ireland to curb the spread of coronavirus COVID-19, this year’s Pan Celtic International Festival will not now go ahead.

This year marks the 49th International Pan Celtic Festival which is being held in Carlow Town. It starts on Tuesday April 14th and continues on until Sunday April 19th.

The International Pan Celtic Festival is a celebration of the cultural links between the Celtic nations of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man and look forward to welcoming old friends back as well as new comers, including musicians and singers, choirs, dancers and storytellers from the six participating nations as we share our celtic language and culture at this great Easter gathering.

The Pan Celtic Festival offers the very best in Celtic music. You can expect to see pipe bands, harpists and fiddlers from Ireland and Scotland as well as traditional folk music, even Celtic rock and pop music.

Whilst primarily a competitive Festival, the Festival has a comprehensive programme of fringe events including themed concerts, walking tour of Letterkenny, music, song and dance workshops, competitions, talks, storytelling sessions, Celtic language workshops, street pageantry, Seisiúin & Céilithe, spectacle and drama. There are also many informal events to entertain those not involved in the competitions.

This is a must attend festival for anyone with an interest in Celtic arts, crafts and traditions. For full details, tickets and further information about events taking place over the festival, please visit, or follow on Facebook or Twitter for the latest details.
