About The Festival

The Soma Festival finale with Eddi Reader and Dónal Lunny

Now in our fifth year, the Soma Festival is an annual celebration of culture and heritage, offering a variety of art forms including music, performance, craft and languages and ensuring they are accessible to a wide range of audiences as well as participants.

Set in the Mournes, one of Ireland’s most iconic destinations, the Soma Festival offers opportunities to extend the activities on offer for visitors to the area, from outdoor sports to relaxation experiences, to celebrating culture, heritage and history. Soma also celebrates great local food and drink, connecting with geography and history, incorporating local produce, dishes and local chefs.

The Soma Festival gives visitors the opportunity for a great time out with a choice of things to see and do.
