Global Irish Festival Series

Some 70 million people around the world claim to have Irish roots and many of them enjoy tracing those roots while holidaying in the home county each year.

Following the success of the Gathering in 2013, a legacy opportunity was identified which saw Fáilte Ireland collaborate with the Department of Foreign Affairs to create the Global Irish Festival Series.

The Series presents a truly unique opportunity for the thousands of Irish people around the world to reconnect with home. In 2022, festivals and events will take place north and south along the Wild Atlantic Way, taking in Mayo (May), Donegal (23rd - 25th September), Limerick (16th Sept - 31st Oct) and Kerry (1st - 31st Oct). Each festival is sending an irresistible invite to the Irish abroad to make the trip back home and celebrate the culture of their own home county, uncover shared histories and forge new, lasting connections.
