Festivals this February on the Island of Ireland
From Chinese New Year festivals to a ‘Gathering’ festival. From chamber music to traditional Irish music. Follow Gaelic tradition by celebrating Imbolc on February 1st, the first day of Spring, by giving your home a good spring clean! Or go snowdrop spotting instead. From Other Voices in Ballina County Mayo to the Rathmullan Film Festival in Donegal. Biddy’s Day in Kerry to Belfast’s Science Festival. From its winter slumber, The Island of Ireland is awakening, and awaiting you.
