BASECAMP VILLAGE

Basecamp Village - the lively social hub of Killarney Mountain Festival

FREE EVENTS - EVERY ONE WELCOME

An integral part of the weekend long celebration is our ‘Basecamp Village’. This will act as the central social hub of the festival and host venue for many of the featured activities including FREE talks & lectures, FREE workshops & displays, food, refreshments & beverages, exhibits & demos and much much more. Daily pop up events at Basecamp & Crean Tent, Killarney House. Check out our event blackboards throughout the weekend.

Located inside the festival marquee, erected in a large designated area at the back of the Killarney Plaza Hotel, it will be ‘the’ place to hang out. It will be furnished & crafted out of reclaimed wood and dressed with Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags, cool Mountain images signifying our ‘village’ as the social hub of the Festival.

Many of the top outdoor brands will be joining us to offer creative insights and demonstrations of their latest gear. The ‘Mountain hut’ bar will be open all day and all night, so festival-goers can browse, chill, relax and enjoy a beer or coffee (or even two) and the Basecamp Stage will host a FREE programme of music, speakers, and displays.
