For its eleventh year the Ballydehob Country Music Festival will offer huge names in Irish Country music, a fantastic bar trail of live entertainment, and outdoor fun for all the family.

Ballydehob, West Cork, Ireland
Friday 31st May – Monday 3rd June, 2024

Dancing will feature heavily again this year with some of Ireland’s biggest country stars crooning the dance floor.

Effie Neill, one of the rising stars of the Irish country music scene, launched her nationwide musical career in 2023 and she has been going from strength to strength since winning the Cowboys & Heroes singing competition in the same year.

She subsequently recorded her single Country Is Best and the track has resonated with listeners as it surpasses in excess of 100k plays online. With exposure and support from The Hot Country TV Show, Effie’s audience has expanded as her voice is heard beyond these shores.

Taking to the stage on Friday, 1st May, and performing with the Barry Doyle Band, this will be Effie’s first time at the Ballydehob Country Music Festival and we can’t wait to welcome her to the village.

Tickets are €15.00 each.
