Following a 2-year hiatus, Youghal Medieval Festival returns, bigger and better than ever before, to St. Mary’s College Gardens this bank holiday Sunday, 31st July 2022 from 12 to 6pm.
Thanks to a partnership with the Heritage Council, Irish Walled Towns Network, and Cork County Council, all events are free of charge. Experience all that the Middle Ages has to offer with living history demonstrations and re-enactments, ‘The Big Dig’ kids archaeology workshops, hands on traditional crafts, falconry demonstrations, a food and craft market and lots more.
Speaking in advance of the event, Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Danny Collins spoke of his delight at the return of the special event which celebrates Youghal’s unique heritage.
Youghal Medieval Festival is also among the first of Cork County Council’s funded festivals to take part in the Green Festivals Programme. This initiative aims to use festivals as a testing ground for waste reduction.
