Hotel Doolin in Doolin Folk FestivalHedge School Doolin, The Attic Live Venue and Doolin Arts, The Doolin Hotel’s mission is to bring people together to create magical memories in Ireland’s largest little hotel.

Doolin Arts is the Doolin Hotel’s non-profit vehicle for supporting the arts in North Clare. All Doolin Arts events, including the Doolin Folk Festival, are run on a not-for-profit basis, ensuring that 100% of ticket revenue goes directly to the festival artists, team and delivery.

The people of Doolin are gearing up to go and have put together another diverse lineup for which the festival has become famous.

Regular participants in domestic and overseas music festivals, the Doolin Hotel team have always wanted to ensure that the Doolin Folk Festival is a truly sustainable festival, with a positive impact on the environment and the artistic community and the first carbon neutral music festival in the country.

They say, “If a small festival like ours can achieve carbon neutrality and pay a fair price to artists, there’s no reason why bigger festivals, with all their resources and the profits generated, can’t strive to do the same.”

There will be no single-use or in-use plastic packaging or products at this year’s festival, no printed programs, wristbands will be compostable, all energy used will come from renewable sources and they will plant 500 trees natives on site with ahead of the festival to add to the 700 they have already planted earlier in the year.

Set in the atmospheric Brigadoon of Doolin, Co. Clare – between the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands – this mid-June festival has become a highlight of the summer festival season. Inspired by the great festivals of the 70s and 80s like Lisdoonvarna, Doolin is an intense musical journey. Nestled in the magical atmosphere of West Clare, you will be taken on a musical journey through era, style and folk culture.
