Nestled below Ireland’s second highest mountain is the parish of Cloghane Brandon. Each year a festival like no other takes place in this picturesque area, The Cloghane Brandon Hillwalking and Music Festival. This unique festival takes place each year amongst the spectacular views of Mount Brandon and its surroundings. This year’s festival is taking place from the 16.04.2022 to the 18.04.2022.
We would like to thank Kerry County Council for the financial assistance provided for this festival through the Community Support Fund. Without their support we would not be able to sustain these celebrations.

The festival offers a wide range of hillwalking activities to suit everyone. The more experienced walkers who would like a challenge can navigate Mount Brandon and The Conor Pass. Those looking for more moderate walks will get to enjoy the Sás Creek to Brandon Point loop walk. This walk offers stunning cliff views of the Atlantic. They will also have the choice of walking from the top of the Connor Pass to Macha Na mBó, where the beauty of Cloghane & Brandon can be truly seen. Of course the weekend would not be complete without a walk to Loch a’Dúin.
Why should you attend this festival? This is a festival not to be missed. The festival has something for everyone; families, walkers and music lovers will get to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of the area while also getting to explore the wildlife and culture that exists in this small west Kerry region. There will also be a chance to learn about history and archaeology on many of the walks. People who attend will have the chance to practice their Irish in the Gaeltacht and above all have the craic with locals and visitors! There will also be lots of music to be enjoyed throughout the weekend.
