Music Festivals in Skibbereen West Cork
This weekend taking place in the Main Car Park in Skibbereen on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July is the Skibb Beats Music Festival. An evening music event, Skibb Beats have organised free bus service from a host of West Cork towns to ferry people to and from the event, but have asked that those in need of a seat on return bus trips book these in advance with Dave Long Coach Travel. Alternatively for those looking for hotels in county cork, why not stay at our hotel in West Cork, which is in the heart of Skibbereen and a short walk to the venue. For West Cork accommodation we will be on hand to offer you advice and tips on how to get to and from your festival of choice!
