The kenmare Chamber of Commerce & Tourism have produced a very good guide to promote Kenmare festivals and events taking place in 2013.

We are really excited about the Gathering as throughout 2013, Ireland will open its arms to friends and family from all over the world, inviting them home to locally organised gatherings in villages, towns and cities. The community of Kenmare have been working hard to create a varied programme of events. Following are some of the key dates for your diary:
