Family orientated festival with a wide variety of cultural, musical, artistic, children's, novelty and sporting events with a focus on showcasing local artists, musicians and indigenous arts.

The Mary From Dungloe International Festival is a popular Irish music & arts festival held annually in the town of Dungloe.

Our flagship events include

Lá Gaelach - one of most popular events. This day celebrates Irish heritage and culture. Highlights include fiddle, whistle, flute and sean nós dance workshops, storytelling, a traditional music session trail, céilí, battle of the céilí bands and traditional music groups performing throughout the day.

Country Sunday - a day long concert featuring well known artists from the ever popular country music scene.

Carnival Parade - colourful parade with carnival groups, dance troupes, float competition and marching bands.

The festival is centered around a pageant with international and domestic entrants to find out which contestant has the spirit of the festival, who is then crowned Mary From Dungloe. The winner holds this title for a year and acts as an ambassador for the festival and the wider Rosses area.

The festival has grown in popularity over the years and now regularly attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the area.
