May the 4th Be With You Festival

That most momentous of days in the Star Wars lover’s calendar, May the 4th Be With You Festival 2019 made its much-anticipated return to the Wild Atlantic Way, which was a huge success! With 2020 festival dates yet to be confirmed keep an eye here for more May the 4th excitement coming to a galaxy (not so far away) soon.

With two of Star War’s most recent instalments having been filmed along the Wild Atlantic Way, where better to celebrate the Star Wars legacy than at this out-of-this-world festival?

This celebration on the west coast of Ireland will have something for every member of the Rebel Alliance. Prepare to get intergalactic along this cosmic coastline; gaze deep into the night at galaxies far, far away; enjoy exclusive screenings of Star Wars: The Last Jedi against the backdrop of actual film locations; catch behind-the-scenes exhibitions; visit beehive huts; enjoy tours, tastings and even train in the ways of the Jedi. There's fun to be had from one end of the universe to the other.

A far-off glimpse of a successful 2019 festival, more May the 4th excitement to come, to a galaxy (not so far away) and in the not too distant future. Keep an eye here for 2020 festival dates!
