Welcome to the website for the original Coillte come home festival.
We hope this website will help in some way help to take our festival back to what it once was – one of the biggest festivals in the west of Ireland and beyond. It is our aim to capture the essence and the fun of what made the Coillte Come Home festival one of the biggest and best the Country has ever seen. The revival of the simple games of old such as the tug of war, wife carrying race, an egg throwing competition and even a publicans pint race, with entertainment for young and old all weekend long. We truly hope to build on the success year on year and show people what it really means to be a true ‘Coillte’. Don’t forget we want you to be a Coillte and come home whether you are related to the town in some way or perhaps you are just a friend.
