Irish Music Festivals 2016

Upset you didn’t get a ticket to Electric Picnic or didn’t manage to get to Body & Soul? Fear not! There’s hundreds of other Irish festivals and I put a list together of the music festivals that stand out to me. There’s a mix between lesser known festivals and well known and there’s something to suit all music tastes. This is not a sponsored post and I put it together because I love music festivals!
