There’s a micro-festival for 110 people called Home happening in August in Westmeath


With every other festival on the Irish festival calendar other than dance festival Fuinneamh cancelled this summer. H&G Creations have come up with an alternative.

HOME is a micro-festival taking place for 110 people from 28th to 30th August in Mount Druid, Co Westmeath, a parkland site with its own chapel, barn, lake, boathouse and accommodation on site, near the village of Castletown Geoghegan. The site is also a working organic sheep farm. 

The weekend will feature Irish art, music, DJs, performers, food, workshops and wellness “with an emphasis on supporting the Irish arts and culture sector that has taken such a heavy hit during the pandemic. “

Food including a dinner banquet Friday and Saturday night, lunch on Saturday and breakfast on both mornings is included in the price of a ticket.

Accommodation includes glamping, tin houses, yurts and decorated huts. Showers and stoves are available.

The Tickets: Ticket prices include premium accommodation, food and festivities across the weekend. €394-499 (inclusive of premium accommodation) and €249-299 for tickets only. Guests will arrive Friday 28 August from 5pm and depart Sunday 1pm. 

H&G creations’ Sinead Bailey Kelly says: “With everything that we have learned from the pandemic, we need to support each other and our community. Support the individuals in the arts and culture sector in our country. We have set up a charity fund as part of HOME so that 10% of profits from the event go to members of the community that need funds to bring their art, music, cultural projects to life.”
