Celebrating Tradition, Heritage, Culture and Having Fun – Together!
Killarney is home to some of the most vibrant and exciting festivals in the country. Festivals not only contribute to the local economy but also showcase the rich culture and heritage of our town and the South West. They help foster a sense of community by bringing people together to celebrate and enjoy our town’s rich history and traditions.
We strive towards creating an inclusive atmosphere where everyone can come together in celebration of culture, tradition and exciting experiences that are unique to Killarney – making it a special place worth visiting time after time!
How Festivals Contribute to the Local Economy and Business Growth
At Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce, we recognise that businesses, voluntary groups and local organisations make these festivals possible. As a major contributor to the local economy, they provide a platform for local businesses to showcase their products and services to a wider audience. In turn, they drive growth and create new opportunities for expansion. By promoting Killarney’s festivals, we are helping to support the continued growth and success of our local businesses.
We believe that partnerships are key to the success of our town’s festivals. That’s why we work with local and regional organisations to ensure that they are well-organised and well-promoted. Their impact on our town’s economy, culture, and business life cannot be overstated. Each one brings thousands of visitors to our town, boosting local businesses and creating new opportunities for growth. We believe that our festivals are a key part of what makes Killarney such a special place to live, work, and visit.
We work closely with organisers to ensure that our members have priority access to festival events and networking opportunities. Our goal is to help member businesses maximise their participation by providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed.
