Kilkenny Tradfest is back for 2024!  

Taking place in the intimate medieval city of Kilkenny, Ireland

from the 15th – 18th March 2024.

Kilkenny is famed for it’s fantastic pubs and venues and we’re delighted to bring another fantastic programme of Irish traditional and folk music to the heart of Kilkenny this St. Patrick’s weekend. Nothing beats the magic of live music!


We are delighted to be hosting the wonderful talent that is Hothouse Flowers in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel this March 15th during Kilkenny Tradfest.

Hothouse Flowers combine traditional Irish music with influences from soul, gospel and rock. Formed in 1985 in Dublin, they started as street performers. Their first album, People (1988), was the most successful debut album in Irish history, reaching No. 1 in Ireland and No. 2 in the UK. Their most recent release, 'Let's do this thing' (2016), sees a return to form and they continue to tour extensively, thrilling fans both old and new with their electric live shows.
