Kilkenny Arts Festival
A world of artistic magic in Ireland’s medieval city
For over forty years, Kilkenny Arts Festival has brought some of the world's greatest artists to the beautiful and intimate surroundings of Ireland's medieval city.
After two years of adapted festivals, the 2022 programme is designed to connect audiences once again with artists that invigorate, intrigue and inspire.
The festival runs for eleven days from 4-14 August. Live music, which was sorely missed during the restrictions, is back in force alongside exciting theatre, dance, opera and literary events which includes a number of festival commissions and co-productions. 11 days, over 100 performances in Kilkenny’s most iconic and beautiful spaces across the Marble City.
