Púca Festival

Púca is one of Ireland’s newest festivals and celebrates Ireland as the original home of Halloween, which began as the ancient tradition of Samhain over 2,000 years ago. The original Irish Halloween was a time for feasting, for gathering and for storytelling, as darkness turns to light and the shape-shifting spirits roam the night.  

For more information on the programme of events from the 2021 event, please visit the Púca Festival website. 2022 dates to be announced.

Púca has been developed by Fáilte Ireland in partnership with Meath and Louth County Councils. The festival plays a key role in attracting visitors, who support revenue generation and job creation in local communities.

The Púca festival is a three-day vibrant and contemporary festival, strongly rooted in tradition with a programme of events centred around spectacle, music and food (inspired by the harvest at the time of Samhain).
