Beating Out The Old Year Festival

  • In a tradition going back over a hundred years, the townspeople of Tarbert take to the streets in the run up to midnight on New Years Eve, forming a parade of traditional Irish music and sporting fiery torches in a procession to beat the old year out and usher in the new. The celebrations culminate with more music in The Square and a glorious fireworks display to welcome in the New Year.

    All are welcome to join in this magnificent and fun tradition and it is family friendly.
