Wandering Kite Festival soaring back to Galway

Galway Daily lifestyle Wandering Kite Festival soaring back to Galway

After its huge success last year, the Galway Wandering Kite Festival is back to bring delightful spectacle to the skies.

The first festival was a sold out hit in Oughterard last year, and true to its name, the 2022 festival will be wandering to a new location at Omey Beach Strand, Claddaghduff this weekend.

Audiences will see the skies over Omey filled with some of the biggest kites in the world flown by some of the world’s most renowned kite-flyers.

Back on the ground there will be music, food, as well as free kite-making workshops on the day for anyone who didn’t bring one with them

Bring your deck chairs, bring your picnic blankets and soak up the atmosphere. Galway Wandering Kite Festival encourages people to have fun in the stunning setting of Galway County and to come together in creativity.

Ruth Mulhern, Tourism Officer with Galway County Council said, “This colourful festival will highlight Omey Strand as the ideal location to showcase the skills of the kite flyers.”

“We decided to roll out this festival in the shoulder season to continue to attract visitors to the region.”

“The Wild Atlantic Way is famous for its wild and windy shoreline and visitors from near and far will delight in the sight of the kites dancing across the sky in this stunning and unique location.”

Experience the joy and wonder of this exciting visual spectacular from 11.30pm until 3.30pm next Sunday, September 25.
