A trip through history and the lives of the last Blasket Island dwellers

The Blasket Centre (Ionad an Bhlascaoid Mhóir) in Dunquin hosts a yearly commemorative festival, celebrating and remembering the lives of the Blasket Islanders. Featuring lectures, stage productions and other events, this festival is of particular interest to history and folklore buffs, although you’ll need to be an Irish speaker to get the most from it (selected lectures will be in English, €5 entry on the door).
