9th – 26th July 2020

Earagail Arts Festival is a bilingual (Irish and English language), multidisciplinary summer festival which traditionally takes place each July throughout County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way on the north-west coast of Ireland.

For 2020, we are delighted to bring you a re-imagined condensed festival of srutháin (small streams), featuring nomadic pop up theatre, mini documentaries, online and radio broadcast performances and interactive conversations across our original dates of 9th to 26th July.


Earagail Arts Festival brings inspiring performers to this captivating European frontier, showcases artists native to the area and provides opportunities for cultural exchange, in venues from purpose built theatres and galleries, to village halls, forests and beaches, creating a unique cultural experience in the most unlikely of magical places.

Our diverse programme reaches out across the county, from Arranmore Island, Letterkenny to Malin, so wherever you are staying when you visit it us in person in 2021 you will be able to enjoy a feast of entertainment located in the heart of one of Ireland’s most outstanding areas of natural beauty, the hidden gem in the Irish crown.
