The bustling town of Cahersiveen, with its traditional shops and markets is a delight in itself. During the summer months there is a great atmosphere of liveliness which is at its peak during the Celtic music festival usually around the august bank holiday weekend. At this time musicians come from all around Ireland and Scotland and every pub has a different musician or group playing each night. This encompasses traditional ceili music, folk music and even blues and jazz. Also there are other events and classes during the day, a busking competition and a street festival at night.
