From the 14th – 20th September 2020 some of the world’s greatest guitarists will descend on a small seaside town in the southwest of Ireland.
Now in its 16th year The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival is a celebration of the guitar. It is not starch collared or stuffy nosed. From virtuosos to noodlers, all are welcomed and exalted!
The Festival is run by a small not for profit organisation of music lovers and we are very proud of the rich, relaxed, educational, exciting & artistic environment our festival creates in our beautiful seaside town.
For the duration of our festival our whole town is the stage with performances & events happening in all manner of venue from the local schools & library to the bars & butcher shops!
The majority of events are free throughout our festival with some select ticketed shows.
Welcome to Guitartown!
