Ché do Bheatha Festival < Back

Event Over

****Due to Covid 19 restrictions, this event has been cancelled. Please join us next year when we will be back bigger and better than ever!****

If you like to party then you will love the Che Do Bheatha Festival.  The whole of Kilkee comes alive with salsa, flamenco, gypsy and all kinds of fantastic music and dance. It is Loop Head’s most colourful event. All the pubs, restaurants and hotels will be holding Latin American events.

The Festival was started in 2011 to celebrate 50 years since the meeting of the artist Jim Fitzpatrick and Ché Guevara in a hotel bar in Kilkee. This meeting inspired the artist to paint the world famous iconic image that has adorned bedroom walls and t-shirts all over the world.

The festival is run every year in September and will be a celebration of all things Latin American….Keep an eye on this page for up and coming details!!!

      Hi Austin, I’m guessing you have already spoken to the organising committee already on this?
