Four days of festival fun lands in Kilkenny this March!

During the St. Patrick’s Festival, the city and county come alive with pageantry, craic agus ceol. Enjoy free events, workshops, and performances, and the main event – The St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 

The St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny takes place alongside Kilkenny Tradfest. A traditional music festival with gigs from some of the best Irish Musicians. There is no better place to be and no better way to experience a real St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland! 

At Pembroke Kilkenny, we are excited to host the legendary Shaskeen group with Katie Theasby. Don't miss them on Sat 16 March, 7pm. 


Having been formed in London in 1970, they have released fifteen albums in that time and have featured some of the best-known names in traditional music over the more than half a century of their time on the road. The band is led by Tom Cussen, along with fellow Clare musicians Eamonn and Clare Cotter, Mary Liddy and Dave Sanders. Connemara box player Patsy McDonagh and Mayo bodhrán player, Johnny Donnellan are joined by London native and Clare-based singer, Katie Theasby, who has been singing on the Irish and English folk scene for decades, including an appearance at Glastonbury festival at just fourteen years of age.
