Hello and Welcome to the 10th Anniversary Skibbereen Arts Festival

As we look back over the past 10 years, it’s hard to believe that a little post in the Southern Star would lead to a decade of wonderful artistic and cultural events in our town.

We were established with the aim of presenting world-class local, national and international talent in Skibbereen and, like the town itself, we have grown a little in size and a lot in stature over the last 10 years and are now recognised as one of the best arts festivals in the country. 

Once again our town becomes one big art gallery this year with a top-class programme of art, music, theatre, film, spoken word, workshops, walks, talks and a spectacular street party!

The arts are good for all of us in so many ways. Come and Enjoy!
