Our village will feature three main venues, as well as a multitude of pop-up stages all over the 120 acre site. The swimming pool, with its wavemaker, slide, hot tub, and balmy conditions will host some steamy tropical party tunes from supreme DJs on Saturday and Sunday mornings, with some amazing aquatic audio and synchronized sounds. All leisure activities at Trabolgan like go-karting, archery, 5-a-side soccer, zip line, climbing walls, crazy golf, and par 3 golf, will operate during the daytime over the weekend. If that isn’t enough, the festival will also host some talks and walks around the Roches Point and Trabolgan area for those interested in a bit of history and a stroll.

How does it work? 

We have booking options for 2 people to 9 people. Your house or camper van site includes your weekend festival ticket. You must book one of the 3 - 9 sleeper houses or one of the camper / caravan pitches. There is no camping, there are no weekend tickets without accommodation. It is a residents only affair which allows us to avail of various residents perks on site.

Much the same as booking a holiday home or an AirBnb for a weekend away, one person books the accommodation and they are the lead contact for your booking.

Your booking includes 3 nights accommodation and weekend festival tickets.

So get your crew together, pick your accommodation type and book!

What to expect:

Big sound, killer lighting and top live performances. Wordsmiths, MC’s, raconteurs and poets will be dropping rhymes and reason; art installations will be popping up, down, and around, the wooded valley on site; great food will be brought to you by some savage stalls and food trucks from only the finest local producers in the rebel county. It Takes A Village will be a home away from home with a musical soundtrack covering a broad palette of tastes, styles and rhythms. It’s a place to meet and make new friends whilst having modern conveniences, comfort and never being more than two minutes walk from your new home!

Please read below before getting in touch with any queries..


Where is Trabolgan?

Situated right on the coast and around the corner from Roches Point in the village of White Gate, East Cork. 30 minutes from Cork / 50 minutes from Waterford  / 3 hours from Dublin.

Can I buy a weekend ticket without accommodation?

Unfortunately not. This is a residents only, self catering event. That means you can bring your own food and drink with you for the weekend but just like other festivals you can't bring your own into the main area.

You must book a house or camper van site (van not included / BYOV) or Sunday day ticket to attend.

Your weekend ticket and booking fees are included in the price of your accommodation, as is access to the swimming pool, pool parties and most of the activities on site. There are some things that Trabolgan run themselves which will be extra but any of the organised festival activities are included.

Are camper vans included with the camper / caravan pitches?

No, vans are not included. These are fully serviced camper van pitches with electricity, water and shower blocks next to them. But it is BYOV!

I'm booking the accommodation but what about my friends who are staying with me?

Much the same as if you were booking an Airbnb or hotel, there is one person who is the lead contact that books the accommodation. You're splitting the cost between your group. We'll be in touch with you after booking with more info and to get details about your party.

How do we get there?

By car / van / bike / car pool and there will be a bus running on Sunday from Cork city.

What can I bring?

What ever you need for the weekend. It's self catering so you can bring food and drink.

I booked a house but now I have more friends that want to join, can I swap tickets?

If you are increasing your numbers and the other booking option you want is still on sale then yes. You can do this is if you contact us via the contact form above. You will then have to book the larger house before we can refund your other order. However, if people can't make it or you want to downsize then unfortunately this is not possible.
