Festival Location

Night And Day festival 2024 will once again take place in Lough Key Forest Park.

The Park is steeped in history and is comprised of vast woodland and numerous islands.  It was once called ‘Moylurg’ and the Kings of Moylurg were the McDermotts, with their official residence on ‘The Rock’, now called ‘Castle Island’.  Space was limited on this small island and they had another residence on the mainland where the Moylurg Tower now stands.

Today the site is home to one of Ireland’s most extensive and picturesque forest parks offering scenic nature walks, a beautiful bog garden, an enchanting wishing chair and magical underground tunnels.
