Féile na Tuaithe, one of the biggest free family festivals in the West, is returning to the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life outside Castlebar in Co. Mayo this May.
Bringing the Museum to life, there will be an exciting programme of entertainment, demonstrations, workshops, music and art for children and adults alike.
It’s a wonderful opportunity for younger visitors to get up close and personal with the sights and sounds of a traditional farmyard. and the drop in Farm Animal Art Project in the Family Village has plenty to keep little fingers and imaginations busy.
Younger visitors can enjoy hands-on art and craft activities, face painting and traditional games, and the Craft and Food Villages provide exceptional opportunities for a bit of shopping or even an outdoor meal enjoyed alongside a live performance from one of the musical acts in the Entertainment Village.
Music, dance and the arts were a very important part of country life in Ireland and play a significant role at Féile na Tuaithe.
The joyful sound of music spilling out from the Entertainment Village on the front lawn always gathers a crowd and acts over the weekend include The Murphy Sisters and the Clew Bay Pipe Band.
Children will love the interactive performance with the WhistleBlast Quartet and the flying feet of sean nós dancer Liam Scanlon.
Taking place on Saturday, 21st and Sunday, 22nd May 2016 from 12 noon to 5pm, this is one event you won't want to miss out.
