Virtual festival only in 2020
Kilkenny is a much-loved tourist destination for national and international visitors in the summer months. To be sure of getting accommodation for your visit to us, which is to your taste and which fits you budget, be sure to organise it well in advance.
You can design your own accommodation package for your stay in Kilkenny: from the budget-priced Kilkenny Tourist Hostel (do tell them that you are coming to Kilkenny to be with us; they know us well and will look after you!) to friendly B&Bs and guest houses all the way to luxury hotels. More information at visitkilkenny.ie
We also book a self-catering house offering shared rooms, available on a first-come, first-served basis each year. Please let us know if you would like to check availability there.
Scoil na gCláirseach overlaps with one of Ireland’s biggest arts festivals – Kilkenny Arts Festival – so be sure to sort out your accommodation as soon as you know you will be joining us, to ensure that your first choice is available to you.
We are very happy to offer advice and help with accommodation choices. Please contact us if you need to.
Scoil na gCláirseach–Festival of Early Irish Harp is made possible with funding from An Chomhairle Ealaíon (The Arts Council) and Kilkenny County Council. Our wonderful bank of HHSI Student harps has been funded by The Music Capital Scheme, supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and managed by Music Network.
