The Cape Clear Island International Storytelling Festival is now in its 26th year, and has become one of the most renowned festivals in the world storytelling calendar. Each year we invite some of the most accomplished tellers from around the world, and from Ireland, sharing this most ancient of art forms to a world audience.

The stunning scenery, folklore and uniqueness of the island's flora and fauna truly make Cape Clear a place apart.

This year's tellers are Bill Harley ( USA) Ruth Kirkpatrick ( Scotland ) Diarmuid O Drisceoil ( Ireland ) Colum Sands ( Northern Ireland )

The Festival also hosts a variety of events from Storytelling Boat Trips to family fun Puppet Shows, and a number of events as gaeilge.
