Comeraghs Wild Festival gets underway again this July and it sounds amazing

Looking for something different to do with the family?

Comeraghs Wild Festival gets underway for yet another year with this year’s programme including an amazing open-air concert deep in the Comeragh Mountains.

The Comeragh Mountains and the adjacent coastal hinterland around the stunning Waterford Greenway will be a hive of outdoor activity and fun from July 11 to 14 and you won’t want to miss it.

Younger revellers can enjoy sea gardening with Marie Power, AKA The Sea Gardener as well as the Away with the Fairies fairy garden building sessions deep in Crough Wood, Arty Crafty at Kilmacthomas Library and Sand Art on Kilmurrin Cove with the renowned sand artist, Sean Corcoran.

The thrill-seekers in the family can try their hand at the surfing sessions while those interested in literature and history can take part in creative writing or the Famine walk.

After all that activity you can tuck into a delicious afternoon tea at Curraghmore House.

Festival chair, Mary Flynn, said of the festival:

“We’re thrilled to have so many new events and venues this year. Comeraghs Wild 2019 has something for all ages, all interests. Whether you’re into dancing at the crossroads, surfing, mountain biking, foraging, history, craft or food, we really have it all. This is a festival that showcases this region at its very best and celebrates our rich history, our deep traditions and this vast, unspoilt hinterland. We encourage everyone to take part.”
