1On your visit to Ireland you are going to find that there are many different attractions to enjoy. What you want to do is perhaps a little bit of pre-planning before your actual visit to find out what festivals that may be running at the time you’re going to be there.

One of the most favored festivals here is the Cat Laughs Festival. This is a festival that revolves around comedy that takes place in Kilkenny. It usually takes place in the early part of June so you may want to keep this in mind when booking your trip. You are going to find that it is a much loved festival and has over 30,000 visitors each year.

What many don’t realize is that Ireland is also well known for its jazz musicians. So much so that there is the Cork Jazz festival that takes place in the late fall of each year. It is a cultural event and has become so popular that visitors from all over the world make it worth attending. It has gained recognition as being one of the very best jazz festivals throughout Europe. For those that are into Gaelic music then the festival of music in Ireland is a must see.

While music plays a big part of the entertainment in Ireland so does the food. Seafood and oysters are very popular in this country, and of course there is the International Clarendon Bridge Oyster Festival which has become quite famous.

If you are looking for a mix of entertainment that has a little bit of everything then you want to book your time in Ireland so that you can attend the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival. This takes place through the entire month of September and is a mix of dancing, music, as well as racing. If you’re single you just may find the soul mate that you have been looking for during your time spent at this festival.
