What's On


If you are planning on staying at home this June Bank Holiday there are plenty of events on around the country to help you make the most of your time off. We have put together a list of some of our top recommendations.

Cork Harbour Festival

This year’s Cork Harbour Festival takes place from the 1st-9th June. With over 70 events running over the 9 days and an expected turn out of 30,000 people there is guaranteed to be a great atmosphere across the city.

The 13th Bloom Festival will take place in Phoenix Park from the 30th May to the 3rd June. The festival will have garden exhibits, a Food Village, live music and a range of activities for children across the weekend. Tickets start at €20 and kids go free.

Forbidden Fruit

With six stages, offering a wide selection of music styles, the Forbidden Fruit Festival is guaranteed to be a great event. The music festival will take place in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham from June 2nd-4th. Both one day and weekend tickets are still available here: www.forbiddenfruit.ie.

The Botanic Gardens

A visit to the Botanic Gardens over the bank holiday weekend would be the perfect day out, particularly if we get lucky with the weather! The gardens will host a variety of events over the weekend so make sure to keep your eyes peeled on their website for more information: www.botanicgardens.ie

Castlecomer Discovery Park
