Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival


6th - 8th November 2015

Welcome to the fourth Sneem International Storytelling and Folklore Festival.


This year’s Festival is a pulse-quickening, funny-bone-tickling, imagination-prickling weekend of storytelling and has attracted leading storytellers to Sneem including from Dublin and London Clare Murphy, Scotland’s David Campbell, Killarney’s Ray O’Sullivan and our own Batt Burns (Founder/ Chairman) plus some guest tellers from Canada and Australia. We are also delighted to announce we also will have Kerry’s acclaimed poet, translator and author Gabriel Fitzmaurice delivering a lecture on stories in the work of Kerry authors.


Patrons can look forward to a feast of activity with adult and children’s workshops, a pub trail, a storytelling walk into the countryside, lunchtime theatre, lectures and a storytelling concert.

One of the highlights of this year's festival will be an audience with Irish sports broadcasting legend Micheal O’Muircheartaigh along with special guests Pat Spillane, Tony Hanahoe and Weeshie Fogarty who will entertain us with Gaelic Games stories from ancient to the present times.


We hope you will enjoy what we have in store this year and hope to see you there!
