Living history enjoyed to-day….

 To safeguard the health of our participants, volunteers and visitors and in observing Government Restrictions & Public Health Advice regarding the Covid19 Pandemic it is deemed necessary to cancel the 2020 Youghal Medieval Festival scheduled to take place on   August 2nd 2020.
  This action is regrettable but essential.
Stay Safe and stay well and we look forward to the rescheduled Medieval Festival in 2021


Youghal Medieval Festival is 14 years  old this year and we celebrate it as  ‘Festival of the Year’  2019 (Chambers Ireland – Excellence in Local Government Awards).   Taking place again this year on the August weekend, thus giving everybody the final hurrah of festive activities before the “back to school” season sets it.   As always Youghal Medieval Festival will be filled with fun activities, games and the every popular medieval battles.

Our programme is not set in stone as yet, but we can guarantee some of the usual return special guests i.e.
Our Medieval re-enactors who set up camp that weekend and live the medieval live in the gardens, also they enact their fearsome battles.  Not forgetting of course the kiddies serious battles, where everybody is a winner.
