How this unique event will merge nature with music and comedy is by coach transport. To The Island is a multi-venue festival, taking in local history and scenic drives as our coach tour brings you on a journey through old Ireland, highlighting some of the most beautiful points that make this place so magical. All you need to do is take your seat onboard and let us do the rest. You will have plenty of opportunities to stretch your legs, breath the Atlantic air and taste local food between journeys.

Once you embark on your journey, you will be brought through some of Achill’s most historic landmarks with insights of times gone by from a local historian, Achill is steeped in incredible history, not the type of stuff that made you fall asleep in school. Our carefully curated line up will merge Traditional Irish and Folk, all the way into the electronic world with ambient, electro, deep house and Berlin techno with laughs from Irelands top up and coming comedians.

After your relaxing day of sights and sounds you can dance the night away with two electronic nights in Gielty’s, Dooagh on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of May. Separate tickets also available.
