Ireby is a small farming village with a population of about 160.  It is siuated on the north west edge of the Lake District National Park; 12 miles from Keswick  and Cockermouth and 18 miles from Carlisle

With a range of music to suit most tastes, performed in small intimate venues and a main stage restricted to just 600 people, Ireby festival presents an unforgettable and unique atmosphere and is considered among the best for those with a real love for live music.

This is the festival’s 14th year and has developed a reputation for selling out early,  so be sure to react fast to be part of one of the last festivals where the actual love for music and one another is still the main point of focus.

Hello, it was our first time at Ireby and we just wished to say "Thank you" for such a superb, honest and uplifting festival!  Regards, Ian & Caroline
