Looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend? Well, we've got you covered! We've rounded up some of our favourite events and festivals taking place over the next few days across the country, some of which are not to be missed!
A relatively new festival celebrating mother nature. The Connemara Green Festival aims to raise awareness of the unique ecology of Connemara and raise funds for biodiversity projects.
