Cuckoo Festival in Kinvarra as part of 9-day trip

Jump to last reply

Has anyone been to the annual Cuckoo Festival (trad music) in Kinvarra and, if so, what did you think - e.g., great vs. too mobbed - worth a day out of a 9-day trip (May 2-11), etc?
(It would mean going here May 3 (after 1st day at Newgrange and night in Trim), instead of half-day + one night in Galway (city)), before heading for counter-clockwise trip to Westport (one night), Achill Isl., through Doo Lough Valley to Clifden (two nights to allow for seeing Killary Harbour and a couple or so light-to-moderate hikes in the Park), Inis Mor (day trip), Ballyaughan (one night), Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Dingle (two nights), then back to Dublin for last two nights/one day (hoping to see ROC, Kilkenny, maybe Glendalough on the way, depending on weather, traffic, fatigue, do-ability in general).
And, of course, if anyone has thoughts about foregoing tentative route, feel free to offer 'em! Thanks!
