When you think of Festivals in Ireland, you usually think of the big ones like the famous Electric Picnic, Longitude, Indiependence, Life Fest, Body & Soul and so on and so on. But, what if I told you that you wouldn’t have to leave Waterford for that exhilarating festival feeling that you all crave?

Well, it’s true! Waterford is an exciting hub of entertainment, music, food and street art over the summer months with many Festivals to choose from. An electricity runs through this ancient city creating an atmosphere that we desire and dream of when we think of the word “festival”.
