The spirit of Púca is back, bringing more mischief and merriment than ever before!
From 23 – 31 October 2021 visitors from near and afar are being welcomed back for a week of music and mythology, sideshows and standup, cabaret and cocktails, and everything else in between.
Púca festival will take place across County Meath and County Louth and, for the first time, Slane Castle is joining in the fun, alongside the our festival hubs of Athboy, Trim and Drogheda, each steeped in Samhain legend and tradition.
Our friend ‘Púca’, the shape-shifting creature from Celtic folklore and a familiar character in Ireland’s narrative of Halloween, will turn the rock n’ roll surrounds of Slane Castle into a playground for the spirits this year.
As Samhain also marked the end of the harvest season, Púca festival embraces the enormous wealth and quality of the local produce on its doorstep, making food and drink another star of the show. From world class whiskey, to award winning seafood, locally raised meat and natural honey, there is something to tickle every taste bud.
