The Kilkenny Arts Festival, one of the highlights of the festival calendar, returns from Friday 10th – Sunday 19th August with a vast array of events for all tastes and ages, Whether you’re into theatre, art, dance, literature, music or all of the above, you’ll find a mouth-watering collection of the very best in home-grown and international acts coming to Kilkenny this summer.

With so many great events to choose from it’s hard to know where to start, but if you’re looking for an unforgettable festival experience – not to mention a heady mix of slapstick, poetry and passion – Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is coming to Ireland for the very first time, bringing its acclaimed open-air production of As You Like It to the Castle Yard. There is also the very best in music, literature, opera, visual art, craft, children’s and street theatre with over 120 events on offer for 10 days in the beautiful medieval city of Kilkenny.
