The new venue for Samhain Festival is fully licensed so this year’s festival will not be a BYO event. Spread across three stages and a plethora of theatrical nooks & crannies will be a host of international electronic acts, a cosmic selection of craft beers, cocktails and a feast of gourmet food! Embrace an alter ego for the night with your best fancy dress and celebrate the ancient Celtic tradition of the “Festival of the Dead’ at Samhain Festival 2014!!
As the sun rises over Sliabh Rua, the Red Mountain, light climbs into the 5000 year old Cairn, illuminating the entire tomb and its three chambers before focusing on the Whispering Stone, an ancient white monolith, an omen of what’s to come at the spiritual home of Samhain.
Shadowed by Sliabh na Caillíagh, the “Witch’s Mountain”, bordered by 300 year old Yew trees, grown to ward off evil spirits and centered around the ruined church of Saint Oliver Plunkett; lies our playground for the night, Loughcrew Gardens.
