Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival


7th - 9th November 2014

Welcome to the Sneem International Storytelling and Folklore Festival.  This is our third year and we hope that this year will be even bigger and better.  November is traditionally the time for storytelling, and is Ireland's oldest form of entertainment.


Join us in the beautiful setting of Sneem on the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way for this unique event celebrating our local traditions and heritage.  This year's storytellers are: Batt Burns (our founder and Chairman), Mike Mazur from the US, Mike Harvey (Wales), Nuala Hayes, Pat Speight, Sonny Egan and Teddy Black.  


We are delighted to announce that Aidan Dooley will be performing his award-winning play "Tom Crean - Antarctic Explorer"  at this year's festival.


This year we again have adult and children’s workshops, walks with our storytellers, the popular walk and storytelling in the barn, pub trail and concerts.  We hope that you will enjoy what we have in store for you as much as we have had planning it.
