It will be the annual event for anyone interested in local, national, and international history…

The first West Cork History Festival will take place over the weekend of 28th-30th July 2017. The programme will span a diverse set of places, historical subjects and periods, from the local to the international, ranging from the Knights Templar to the events of the Irish revolutionary period in West Cork. Leading historians will be joined by journalists and senior diplomats, and while much of their focus will be on Irish themes, the perspective will be international. The festival will be informal, participatory and with a menu for the intellectually omnivorous.
