Explore the natural wild beauty and diversity of the Comeraghs!

We are delighted at the return of a festival which will highlight all that’s wonderful about the Comeraghs. Titled "Comeraghs Wild", the festival highlights the natural beauty, diversity and uniqueness of the area using Walks and Talks, traditional music, poetry and film, with a strong emphasis on nature and adventure.

This is very much a community led festival with communities across the Comeraghs and the Copper Coast coming together to showcase the great natural amenities and activities we have here. While many of the villages in the vicinity of the Comeragh Mountains have their own highly successful festivals and events, the Comeraghs Wild Festival once again sees communities right across the Comeraghs working together to collectively market the area to visitors from home and abroad.

The festival programme encompasses heritage, nature, literature and music - all designed to showcase the beauty and heritage of the Comeraghs and expose visitors to the area’s authenticity and unique sense of place. Events are taking place across the Comeragh mountains’ communities, along the Copper Coast and in Dungarvan, the festival hub.

The Festival is a Waterford City & County Council initiative, in co-operation with the Comeraghs Mountain Forum. We are particularly delighted to once again be associated with Tionól na nDéise, Waterford County Council’s Irish Office’s celebration of local cultural traditions.

Guímid gach rath ar an bhFéile agus bainigí sult as!
