Puck Fair (August 10th/11th/12th)
Killorglin is the portal to the Wild Atlantic Way on the Ring of Kerry and is steeped in history.
At over 400 years old, the annual celebration draws visitors from all across the country and beyond every August 10th/11th/12th.
Laune Rangers GAA Football club was formed in 1888 by two teachers. The newly formed club won the Kerry County Championship of 1889 and 1890. In 1890, after again winning the County Championship, Rangers represented Kerry in the All-Ireland series. The club’s finest hour came when they won the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship in 1996 beating Éire Óg of Carlow in the final.
Famous players have included Mike & Liam Hassett, Peter Crowley and Mike Frank Russell, all of whom have won All-Ireland Senior Football Championship titles with the Kerry county team.
K-FEST is a dynamic arts festival with an emphasis on emerging artists, uses unoccupied spaces in Killorglin, transforming vacant retail outlets, deserted buildings, and even domestic homes into curated bespoke pop-up galleries and venues over the June Bank Holiday weekend.
In 2021, the festival will be held over the October Bank holiday weekend.
