The Hilden Beer and Music Festival is Ireland’s longest established open-air festival with our first event taking place in August 1984. The event has taken on a whole new life in recent years thanks to the increased popularity of craft beers and live music. More than 20 musical acts will perform over the weekend creating a line up that features rock, ska, blues, traditional and singer song writing talent (often found in the landscaped Giant Tipi Garden). With over 30 beers available from a wide range of breweries, local produce and tradition are at the heart of The Hilden Beer and Music Festival.
