Mountshannon Arts Festival 2015

Nestled on the western banks of Lough Derg, the Mountshannon Arts Festival (formerly the Iniscealtra Festival of Arts) takes place every year in the village of Mountshannon in East Clare. Each May brings a new collection of exhibitions, performances and workshops to inspire and to entertain locals and visitors alike.

Rooted in the visual arts, the ethos of the Festival is to create access to works and exhibitions that would not be easy to find in a rural area while at the same time stimulating the creation of works and performances from within the local community.
