Uisneach Inn, Killare, Co Westmeath – Bealtaine, May 4/5 2013

Camping and Accommodation

Camping is available at Festival of the Fires, and a special campsite will be located on the Hill of Uisneach, accessible via its own pedestrian walkway. Your entry to the festival will be beside the main stage and not the ancient palace as it was last year.

Camping tickets are on sale from all Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and from www.ticketmaster.ie and are priced €40. This includes full access to the main Uisneach festival and access to the campsite as well as other facilities.

Please note, you must have a camping ticket to gain access to the festival campsite. Please note also that camping tickets are per person, not per pitch, so every person wishing to camp MUST buy their own camping ticket.

Camper vans are welcome but we do not have a dedicated camper van area including power and other services. There will be an area within the main festival car park for camper vans and you are welcome to come along and park there.

Parking at Festival of the Fires is in the grounds of Lunestown House, directly opposite the main festival gate. Extra parking will be available at the Uisneach Inn pub and restaurant.

    I went to the festival last year. It was very good but I don’t think there should be a fee to visit a sacred hill. I lived in Killare for many years and I climbed the Hill on a few occasions and I will again but I will not pay €30 or €35 to do so. And I will add a number of people are of the same frame of mind as myself. Maybe ye could come up with another way of celebrating this event. I wish ye luck on this occasion
