The Clancy Brothers Music and Art Festival will return this year at the later date WEDNESDAY JULY 21st to SUNDAY JULY 25th…
Last year the town’s Flagship Festival, had to go 100% virtual due to Covid-19 restrictions. This summer due to the continued success of the vaccine programme, the hugely popular festival is making a welcome return at a later date… with an exciting, hybrid mix of live and online events.
Holding the Festival later this year allows us to plan a more diverse blended programme in line with current Covid-19 restrictions – bringing you many festival favourites along with new and innovative events to look forward to.
The 2021 Clancy Brothers Festival will include an exciting mix of music, drama, performing arts, competitions, workshops, heritage walks and tours, and the beloved Art Trail!


So please stay tuned for further announcements on this year’s Clancy Brothers Festival here on our website or on our Facebook page. 
Now in its fourteenth year, the Clancy Brothers Festival owes much of its success to the goodwill and financial support of the people and businesses of Carrick-on-Suir, and the festival thanks its sponsors, patrons and supporters for their generous contributions over the years.
We are very grateful for everyone’s support during this challenging year as our team continues to work hard to help get the Arts back on its feet and make the 2021 Clancy Brothers Festival one to truly look forward to!
The Festival will hugely benefit the hospitality, culture, arts, non-essential businesses and tourism sectors in the town which have been so badly impacted by the pandemic.









Every June Bank holiday weekend music, art and tradition flows through the streets of Carrick-On-Suir as the Clancy Brothers Festival of Music and Art takes place.

The festival honours the musical legacy of the influential Irish folk music group of the 1960s, ‘The Clancy Brothers’, whose home town was Carrick-On-Suir and who are credited with popularising Irish folk song across the world.

There’s music and art in the theatres, in the pubs and on the streets…so come to Carrick-on-Suir for the Clancy Brothers Festival on the June Bank Holiday where there’s music and magic in the air!

The Festival embraces the local community and showcases the exceptional local talent in performing, visual & multi-disciplinary arts. Carrick-on-Suir boasts so much talent for a small community and The Clancy Brothers Festival is the perfect way to showcase local talent as well as national and international artists.

‘The Clancy Brothers Festival is a magical little festival. There is music in the air, and storytelling and poetry. Go soak in the great tradition of melody and balladry that is the legacy of the Clancys’, John Spillane.
