May the Fourth Festival: May/Bealtaine


From a thrilling story of adventure, wisdom and companionship to a cultural phenomenon that has swept around the globe, the Star Wars saga continues to inspire new generations and capture the hearts and minds of millions.

The 2019 May the Fourth Festival takes place from Friday the 3rd to Sunday the 5th of May, in beautiful Ballyferriter.

Having visited some of its most epic moments upon the Wild Atlantic Way during the filming of two of its most recent instalments, the Star Wars legacy is being celebrated with the annual May the Fourth Festival. Hop in your X-Wing Fighter and let's fly.

From the buzz in Ballyferriter, where the Ceann Sibéal headland became home to five extraplanetary beehive huts in 2016, to 'Portmagee', home base for some of the cast and crew whilst shooting on the extraordinary Skelligs, this three-day celebration in the heart of Co. Kerry on the Wild Atlantic Way will have something for every member of the Rebel Alliance.

For full details visit:

So clear your calendar, set your coordinates to the Wild Atlantic Way and get ready to explore the unrivalled charm of Kerry's villages, cultural attractions, lively pubs and gift shops on this wonderful weekend. And, of course, May the fourth be with you.
