Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

Lost in a world of luscious green, where the grass cradles your footfalls and the trees reach toward the heavens, you'll find a festival unlike any other. Returning once again, Townlands Carnival is set to be bigger, better and bolder than the year before.

While you walk the ancient woodlands and valleys near Cork's old Rusheen Farm estate, surrounded by lakes, follies and tree-lined green fields, we encourage you to enjoy the sun with friends and family while soaking in all the entertainment we have on offer.

We're cramming music, art and entertainment into the best Irish festival event, set across three days this summer. Pairing established artists with upcoming talents, we plan to showcase acts from all musical genres, including everything from acoustic to electronic, reggae, folk and hip hop, with a special focus on cross genre or multimedia artists. Our growing roster of musical virtuosos already includes the unforgettable Sister Sledge, a thumping DJ set from Leftfield, the return of the ultimate on stage performers King Kong Company and the gypsy jazz of The Eskies, with many more names to be announced.
