Our Festival

It’s our 8th year.  Thanks to our early August birthday, we’re the oldest kid in our P5 class.

We’re a small festival based near Lisnaskea, Co. Fermanagh – promoting the best in grassroots bands, musicians, artists and artisans.  We’ve been honoured to have some brilliant artists playing at our humble farm over the years, many of whom have subsequently catapulted in the mesospheric.  Coincidence?  Aye, right.

In 2009 Babysweet Sessions made a lovely Documentary that explains better (but less eloquently) just what it is we are and do.

Past Festival Reviews

Last year, Chordblossom and AU came down to the farm and took the time to soak up the vibe and what Forfey Festival has to offer.

And here’s what BBC’s Across the Line and AU had to say about the experience of the 2011 festival.

Basics

We operate a zero-drugs policy.
The festival is open to all ages, with the strict proviso that anyone aged 17 and below is accompanied by a responsible adult.
Access to venues and the campsite will only be granted with a weekend or day pass.  Camping is only available to those with a full weekend ticket.

Our tickets are still great value at £45 per single and £100 for a family (two adults and their kids).  For more info see the Tickets page.

Weekend tickets include free camping and car parking.  Day tickets are coming soon.

Sleep

Nothing beats camping under the stars, except maybe staying in a warm, homely abode.
Nearby B&B and self-catering accommodation include The Watermill at Kilmore QuayAisling HouseLeander Lodge, amongst others that Google is fairly clued in about.

Directions

From Belfast, take the M1 towards Enniskillen. After passing through Fivemiletown take the turn-off for Brookeborough. At the mini roundabout turn right, then take the left before the Pentecostal church. At the junction with the green bus shelter on the left, turn left. At the end of the road cross the junction and follow signs for car parking.

Or for the more technology-savvy, enter the postcode BT92 5AQ into your satellite navigation system and we’ll see you in about  an hour and a half.

Transport

Car pooling is a handy option to make it on down to the farm, but if you prefer otherwise:
Plane - Belfast International, Belfast City and City of Derry Airports are all within 90 minutes drive.  If you’re planning on bringing the private jet, Enniskillen Airport isn’t far at all.
Bus - The closest public transport is operated by Ulsterbus, with Route 261 stopping off at Maguiresbridge on the way to/from Belfast/Enniskillen.  From Maguiresbridge, taxi or a pleasant dander in the countryside for 3-4 miles will bring you to the farm.
