Wild Atlantic Festival

The Wild Atlantic Festival takes place from 1st to 8th August. We will comply with government regulations at all times.

The main events include limited numbers on walks and open air music on the Diamond. Highlights will be the visit of the Wild Atlantic Women to the Diamond on Thursday night and live music by Hard 2 Beat on Saturday night.

We have many visitors from all over Ireland visiting Ardara now and we want people to know that Ardara is always welcoming and we provide music and entertainment where we can to show that appreciation.

He has cycled over 2600 Km on his own, camping at night to raise funds for Autism. He has ensured much and he deserves a good welcome as he goes through the town tonight. Please support him.
