What we're about
This Meetup is for anyone who loves creative and literary festivals, or who would love to try a festival for the first time. Maybe you and a friend would like to meet more people on your travels or maybe you like to travel alone. I've been going to festivals on my own for many years and always have a great time. I love meeting new people and catching up with others from year to year. I've met lots of individuals who'd love to attend a festival but don't know what to expect, or how to connect with others to have a coffee, a drink, or maybe a chat, but most of all, to attend events. This is true whether you have a companion or not.
It's nice to get to know people and enjoy the festivities with other like-minded individuals. I've added a list of Meetups for each of the festivals I'm going to this summer. There will be many opportunities to meet over the course of a festival so feel free to contact me in advance or when you arrive, and we can arrange to meet. Most festivals have a mix of Free and Paid-for events.
I also like any creative or cultural events. So far this year I've travelled with my family to the Festival of the Fires at the Hill of Uisneach, but it was sold out, ages in advance, plus many of the smaller festivals are word-of-mouth events. Some you will only discover when you meet others, so if you're living in Ireland or travelling here for holidays, I hope you get in touch. I'm based in Dublin city.
Happy Festivities, Martina
