The hugely popular De Barra's Sitting Room Sessions moves to a bigger stage, where trad-heads and rock-gods will perform intimate acoustic sets, the stuff of legend! Plus The Eclectic Tent, DJ's, comedians, art, fringe events, the very best in West Cork food, creamy cold pints of Murphy's and much, much more!
