Three Circus Festivals in One Weekend on Achill

23rd – 25th September 2022

Roll up! Roll up! Achill Island will host not one, not two, but three fabulous circus-themed festivals on the weekend of 23rd to 25th September 2022.

On Friday 23rd, as part of the national Culture Night initiative, there will be an evening of poetry, music, performance and fire at the historic Valley House, Valley. The entertainment includes music from Ursula Burns, performances from bardic poet Kevin Toolis and from Hard Rock Roxy, Ireland’s only strongwoman. There will also be fire dancing from Strix Nebulosa. This event is free but booking is required via EventBrite.

On the night of Saturday 24th September the Twilight Circus will welcome autumn at the Equinox Festival, at the historic Valley House. This also is a free, but ticketed, event. Tickets now available via EventBrite.

And to round off a unique weekend of circus performance, on Sunday 25th September the Straw Bale Theatre returns to Dugort with a full day of acts, shenanigans and musical mayhem. This free event takes place opposite Masterson’s Bar & Restaurant, Golden Strand, Dugort. Tickets now available via EventBrite.
