First Official Festival After Lockdown

Keep yer hands to yerself

Ardara is proud to announce that our new festival will take place on the weekend starting Friday November 19th until Sunday 21st.

Traditionally the Matchmaking Festival would be taking place around then but with all the emphasis on social distancing etc. we are calling this festival the “Keep Yer Hands to Yerself” festival.

A great creation by Donna Harkin, the festival will involve sessions of music throughout the town at various locations with fun, music and craic… and no touching!

Popular band ‘Hard 2 Beat’ will perform on Saturday night to our first country dance in a long time.

More details of the festival to follow, or stay updated on the Ardara Town Facebook page.

New Refuse Collection Point

A Unit to collect all refuse is available at Maloney’s Filling Station. Two bags can be deposited at a time. This is an excellent service and should help with the fight to stop refuse being thrown on the road side. All rubbish can be deposited at any time. The new Service should be highlighted to all visitors coming to the area. Tickets can be bought in the shop or you can top up online. Visit for details.
