Castlepalooza 2017 Music Festival
One of Ireland's leading music festivals is Castlepalooza, a music and arts festival at Charleville Castle.
Charleville Castle Tullamore Offaly
4th August to 6th August 2017
Over the years, the fest has basked in sun and drowned in the rain, but it has always been one of the most entertaining weekends of the summer festival season.
Attracting some stellar international talent, the three-day event, after enjoying a refresh last year, has gone stratospheric. Last year, audiences were treated to performances from Caribou, Villagers and Jurassic 5.
The festival also has plenty of green credentials and a focus on local and delicious food and drink. You can gorge yourself on all the good things in life for one momentous weekend if you head to Tullamore with the intention of being king of the castle for one fine weekend.
The lighting of the Uisneach beacon fire was the signal for igniting fires on many hills across the whole island creating a unique ‘fire eye’ with Uisneach being the pupil. This heralded the coming of summer.
