A Festival as Dramatic as the Landscape

Earagail Arts

Come and experience an undiscovered world of unique music, culture and spectacular scenery on the northern most route of the Wild Atlantic Way. Immerse yourself in a festival of music, theatre, visual arts, literature, and family friendly events.

With over 100 events happening between 8th-24th July, there’s something for everyone in the Earagail Arts Festival programme. In the first weekend EAF have partnered with the Swell Festival to curate The Mountain Stage with a programme of elelctronica, Americana, bi-lingual spoken word, and contemporary Scots/Irish Gaelic events.

After that, they have a host of visual arts such as Turner Prize nominee Willie Doherty & award-winning theatre from Prime Cut Productions, all this and more before the International Donegal Folk & Roots Weekend happens on 15th -17th July.


You’re spoilt for choice in the lead up to the closing weekend in Malin, everything from a stunning tribute to dramatist Brian Friel to UNIFIED The Musical. To finish off the festival The Wild Atlantic Weekend promises to be a must see attraction; there’s a land sailing Percussion Boat, guided cultural walks, circus acts, and music to suit all tastes including: a cross genre musical collaboration In The Shadows of Steam featuring Hannah Peel, Erland Cooper (The Magnetic North), Tommy Mc Laughlin (Villagers/SOAK) and Michael Keeney playing 23rd July in McGrory’s of Culdaff, and the Hendrix of the Sahara, Vieux Farka Touré playing McGrory’s on 24th July!
