Cancellation of the 2022 Festival

The Oranmore Arts Festival committee have made the difficult decision not to continue planning for a festival in 2022.

After a difficult couple of years for everyone, we have realised we don’t have the energy or resources to do the festival justice, and it’s time for all of us to take a step back for a while. We’ll be continuing to discuss options for the future, and we will make a decision in the coming months about whether we are able to bring the festival back to Oranmore in a couple of years time.

We are so grateful to the Oranmore community for being so supportive over the last four years since the festival started, and we look back with great pride at the way the festival grew and developed with the support of the creative local community. We sincerely hope we will be able to be a part of bringing something equally exciting to Oranmore again in the future.

Wellspring Vol. 1

It’s Here!

The first official volume of Wellspring- a celebration of the creativity that is alive and blossoming in our community.

It takes it name from the meaning of Oranmore – Fuarán Mór (“Great Spring” in Irish), and is defined as “an abundant source of something.” Abundance is just the word to describe the energy of this village.
