Newgrange News - 13th Le Cheile Festival

If you are looking for hotel accommodation in Meath during July and August as well as a little entertainment, then you are in luck. The 13th Le Cheile Festival is scheduled to run for five days, starting at the end of July and culminating on the bank holiday on Monday, 1 August. This promises to be one of the top things to do in Meathduring this time.

The exciting festival features over 30 bands, comedy, theatre, art and more with the main stage at Creans, Phantom 105.2 with all of the other events throughout Oldcastle.

Attendees can look forward to music from Mick Flannery on the Friday as well as the supremely talented Sharon Shannon and local favourite Ham Sandwich. On Saturday Irish legends Aslan will be rocking the Marquee at Crean's Bar while one of Ireland's hottest bands, the Hot House Flowers, will headline on the Sunday. Oldcastle's own The Koozies will close the festival on the Monday to bring an end to five days of supreme partying. Of course, there are a lot of supporting acts as well as side-splitting comedy from the likes of Kieran Lawless and Des Bishop.

On the art side of things, visitors can enjoy samba and fire dancing workshops, mask and clay making as well as a puppet show just to name a few. For more information on the event, check out Le Cheile's official website.

To ensure that you are close to the event, book your hotel accommodation in Meath at the Newgrange Hotel. That way, you can rest in comfort after some wild nights out.
