Uisneach Bealtaine Fire Celebration

The Hill of Uisneach, one of the five 'royal sites', hosts the spectacular 5,000 year old Bealtaine Fire Celebration this May.

The Hill of Uisneach

6th May 2016

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. 

2016's celebration will represent different things for different folk. It has a deep spiritual resonance with our long forgotten past; it's an opportunity to showcase our unique heritage through the guided tours of the 150 acre site; and, most importantly, it's a way to celebrate together the passing of the season.
