Kiwis love the Irish, and with over 600,000 New Zealanders claiming Irish ancestry, it’s no wonder. Yet there has never been a National Irish Festival in New Zealand, until now.

A killer Irish Trad Session at the Fox & Ferrit straight after Damo! Stick around after the show and enjoy Hair of the Dog, up from Queenstown, as you drink a few more Guinness and Bushmills while the night is still young!

For the first time, this November, Kiwis and Irish alike, will come together to celebrate everything Irish with a massive four-day celebration, with over sixty events, across three cities, as part of the inaugural NZ Irish Fest.

From the 15th – 18th November, three celebrated songwriters will travel from Ireland to play shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch alongside local musicians. The feature artists are: the iconic Damien Dempsey from Dublin; award winning songwriter Mick Flannery from Cork; songstress Lisa O’Neill from Cavan and Irish comedians Alan McElroy (Dublin) and Darren Jardine (Belfast).

NZ Irish Fest will also see the premiere of four Irish Films in NZ and marks the very first Irish Film Fest. As if musical performances, comedy, film, Irish dancing displays and Gaelic Football showcases weren’t enough of a reason to celebrate, the All Blacks play Ireland in Aviva Stadium, Lansdowne Road in Dublin the same weekend on Sun the 18th of November at 8am (NZ Time).
