The South Wicklow Drama Festival has been running since 2005 when it was founded by members of Kilrush Drama Group.


Welcome to the South Wicklow Drama Festival website.

The 2024 South Wicklow Drama Festival took place from Friday 15th – Saturday 23rd March (excluding Sunday 17th March) in St. Brigid’s Hall, Carnew.

We look forward to welcoming Liam Hannaway, Chairman of the Amateur Drama Council of Ireland, to officially open our 2024 Festival.

We also look forward to welcoming Imelda McDonagh as adjudicator of the festival. Imelda is the President of the Association of Adjudicators (ADA). 

The 2024 Festival was launched on Thursday 22nd February in Jim Byrne's by Ettie Kilbride.
