It is with great regret that the Cong Festival Committee has learned of the passing of Maureen O’Hara. We would like to extend our sincere condolences to her family at this time. 


Cong Festival 2015

Cong Festival is now officially over for another year but what a festival it was. Hundreds of people attended a wide variety of events over the nine days of the Festival and not only had great fun but also raised a great deal of money for charity.

 We would like to express our sincere thanks to all those who hosted events and activities, all our sponsors and all of you who came along and supported events.

We hope you all had a great time at Cong Festival 2015 and look forward to seeing you all at Cong Festival 2016!


Cong Festival began in 2011 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the making of the classic film The Quiet Man. John Ford filmed the movie in Cong in 1951 and 60 years later, Cong welcomed back Maureen O’Hara to the beautiful West of Ireland Village.
