Our favourite event "Féile na gCloch" is back again this year and it is getting bigger and stronger each year! This unique stone festival consists of workshops and talks around all aspects of stonework.

The main areas of focus are dry stone building, carving and letter carving. There will be world renowned masters of their art available to instruct and talk about each one.

This year also includes a documentary film "Miles of Stone" exploring the tradition of dry stone walls across Ireland. Féile na gCloch runs from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th Sept. 2016. Click  below for full details of the events and biographies of the instructors.
