Ballyhoura Walking Festival & Joyce Brothers Music Festival 2024

Get your walking boots and join us for the 28th Ballyhoura Walking Festival, taking place from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th October 2024 in Kilfinane, Co Limerick.

Established as Ireland’s first-ever walking festival back in the day, it provides an opportunity to explore some of Ballyhoura Country's stunning scenery. Many of the walks are led by members of the Ballyhoura Bears Walking Club – who have in-depth knowledge of the area and its heritage, history, flora, and fauna – and they are suitable for all abilities, from the enthusiastic well-equipped walker who relishes a challenge to the gentle ramblers who are out to enjoy pleasant walks over the course of the weekend.

This year again sees the Walking Festival taking place for the 4th year in a row in tandem with the Joyce Brothers Music Festival, whose musical and cultural contributions added so much enjoyment to the festival's weekend.

To keep your energy levels up, make sure to check out the Cultural Food Fair organised by the Kilfinane Community Council.
