The National Circus Festival of Ireland is now a mature adult, but thankfully the organisers are not, so another epically brilliant festival is coming to Tralee this November.

We began tiny, bringing people together through a shared love of all things circus. Look how we’ve grown!

Come to The National Circus Festival of Ireland to fly, marvel, juggle and pop your eyeballs clean out of your sockets! Come to meet old friends and make new ones, to fall in love with our beautiful art form and celebrate culture and human creativity with us in the wilds of the Atlantic coast in beautiful Kerry.
