KILFLYNN ENCHANTED FAIRY FESTIVAL
The rescheduled Kilflynn Enchanted Fairy festival will take place the 27th and 28th of August.
After a two-year break, we are all really looking forward to welcoming you back to the magical village of Kilflynn.
Festivities will commence Saturday afternoon at the earlier time of 4pm with a magical parade that will reveal the treasure chest holding the Kilflynn Enchanted map. The map will make its way through the village guarded by the knights and the fairies will then create a spell on the enchanted stage to create hundreds of maps so you can all enjoy the trail on Sunday.
Sunday morning the trail will open at 11am and all visiting magical humans will be sprinkled with fairy dust so that they can see the fairy houses and enjoy a beautiful enchanted magical fairy trail.
As well as fairies there will be bouncy castles, ice cream and delicious food stalls, crafts stalls, face painting and so much more so bring a picnic and dress up for a truly magical experience.
As the parade will take place at the earlier time Saturday evening at 4pm some traffic delays can be expected between 4 and 5 and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Tickets are on sale now online through Eventbrite for €8 plus booking fee or at the gate on the day for €10-under 2s go free.
The Abbeydorney/Kilflynn retired group will meet again on Wednesday 7th September following their summer break. Any enquiries please contact 066 71 35831. New members are very welcome.
