To The Island Festival logo

Achill hosts a new type of music and comedy festival over the May Bank Holiday. ‘To The Island’ is a journey through old Ireland and some of its most beautiful and spectacular natural beauty, combining local culture, history folklore with an eclectic range of live music and comedy.

At the heart of this multi-venue festival is a series of coach tours to scenic locations on Achill, with stop-offs and commentary from a local historian, and of course with music. The event has a carefully curated line-up ranging from traditional Irish and folk music, to Turkish and Flamenco guitar, through to modern electronic sounds including ambient, electro, deep house and Berlin techno. All washed down with a barrel of laughs from some of Ireland’s top up-and-coming comedians.
