The 2023 Festival (11-13 August) was even bigger and better this year with a move to a new venue - the beautiful and historic Inish Beg estate between Skibbereen and Baltimore.
Featuring the same fantastic history - local, national and international - and the same informal atmosphere. We returned to our pre-pandemic format with a full programme across two separate venues, as well as our Festival concert, Festival field trips and a Festival winetasting. Full programe details below.
Our 2023 Festival had two main themes, firstly a focus on the Irish Civil War and the Decade of Centenaries and secondly Munster and Ireland's mercantile connections in the 18th century, notably the trade and consumption of wine but also the Atlantic slave trade.
