About

Timahoe Heritage Festival.

June 1st & 2nd 2024.

Our event is all about sharing the story of a village in Co. Laois, that is steeped in centuries of history; from monks, monasteries and Vikings, to the famine, the War of Independence and beyond.

The Annals of the Four Masters, records that in 919, a monastic settlement at Timahoe, Co. Laois, was raided by the Vikings. In 2019 we held our first Timahoe Heritage Festival to mark the 1100 year anniversary of this event.
On June 1st & 2nd, 2024, we are again remembering the Viking raid, along with many other aspects of our past. Highlighting our history and heritage in a fun, interactive, & family friendly festival, is so important to us. With Heritage Runs, Heritage Talks, Funfair, Art & Craft Fair, Fancy Dress, Free Children’s Workshops, a Reenactment Viking Village, Archery Range, displays in Basket Making, Beekeeping, Weaving, Pottery, Medieval Cooking, and Viking Weaponry, we really can say, ’there is something for everyone, at Timahoe Heritage Festival 2024!’
