Boyle Arts Festival is highly regarded for its group exhibitions of contemporary Irish art, as well as its programme of classical music. The beauty of Boyle Arts Festival is the emphasis it places on small, intimate events in historical and architecturally unique buildings. This 10 day festival has a strong reputation as one of Ireland's best arts festivals. Although music and art are the cornerstones of the festival, more recently different events are promoted such as drama, film, literature and storytelling, comedy, singers nights and street theatre and an appealing mix of workshops and childrens programmes. Local art exhibitions, pop-up galleries and craft trails are now part of the programme which has made art accessible to all who get involved.
