Bealtaine Cross Quarter Walking Festival

BEALTAINE CROSS QUARTER WALKING FESTIVAL

29th April - 1st May 2023 Killorglin

Walking Festival

BEALTAINE CROSS QUARTER WALKING FESTIVAL

May is a time when people in the Reeks District celebrate the arrival of summer with Bealtaine. In ancient Ireland, these celebrations were connected with Dagda, the fertility god.

 

In modern times, we still observe some of the ancient rites by hanging out May boughs or decorating shrubbery around our homes. Our Bealtaine Walking Festival is the perfect way to celebrate the time of plenty.

 

Longer daylight hours and warmer weather mean plenty of time to explore walking routes with history and ancient rock art. The walks will be rounded off with music, Irish culture and language, good food and company.
