PolskaÉire Festival

The PolskaÉire Festival was established as a nationwide Festival to coincide with the UEFA Republic of Ireland vs. Poland qualifier in March 2015. We were very modest and hoped for 10, maximum 20 events, that could be organized around the match. And the response was overwhelming: there were more than 100 events all around Ireland, from sport to literature, from family events to music and many more!


Therefore we decided to continue this initiative and this year we bring you the second edition of the Festival. Again, there will be plenty events where the Irish and Poles can celebrate together their friendship, learn from one another and most importantly: share “Dobry Craic”. Join us and celebrate this Festival with us! The craic will be dobry!
