Five day family festival with something for everyone: a BBQ, funfair, guided walks, workshops, fun runs, the National Wife-Carrying Championship, craft market and much, much more!

Sneem Family Festival is one of the top family festivals in Kerry. Kicking off with a children's fancy dress parade, the kids can then bounce in the green while you sit back and enjoy the village barbeque. Take them crab and lake fishing. Have a giggle with laughter yoga. Visit the funfair. Take the family out on Kenmare Bay in motorised kayaks or get your friends together for a rib trip across the bay or deep-sea angling. Head to the mountains and enjoy breath-taking scenery on daily guided walks. Try out a workshop for children and adults - choose from puppet making, silk and pottery painting, mini-music, drum circle and pop-up choirs.

For the more competitive among you, there are fun runs, football blitz, sheaf tossing, golf competitions, and, of course, the National Wife-Carrying Championship. Help raise much needed funds with the Annual Sunset Walk for the Marie Keating Foundation or bid for a chair that is a work of art in the "Chair-ity" Auction. Watch the sheep shearing. Stroll around this colourful village, visit the country and craft market and enjoy the traditional village fete or just relax in one of the beautiful greens and watch the world go by.

Now in its 11th year, the Sneem Family Festival has something for everyone!
