Welcome to the eighth Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival.  We are busy finalising our lineup for this year's festival, keep an eye on our facebook page and website for details.  Last year’s storytellers were Connie Regan-Blake from USA, Frances Kennedy and Tom Moore both from Listowel, Kerry, Pat Speight from Cork and our own Batt Burns (founder/Chairman) from Kerry as well as our Young Tellers and John Sheehan who was so popular last year, we have invited him back this year.


We also had the fabulous Cork musician John Spillane entertaining us on the Friday night at the Storytelling Concert and we will shortly be announcing another renowned musician for this year's concert.


Last year's Saturday feature play was "Silent" presented by Fishamble: The New Play Company, written and performed by Pat Kinevane, again watch this space for this year's play.


Patrons can look forward to adult and children’s workshops, a pub trail, storytelling in the barn, and The South Kerry Rosen Choir will be back to entertain you by popular demand.


We think we have something for all ages, for visitors and locals alike. We hope you enjoy our Festival and our colourful village.
