Kerry Drama Festival 2023 is on at The Ivy Leaf Theatre in Castleisland, a wonderful venue located in an old church. This has been the venue for The Kerry Drama Festival for many years.
The 2022 festival was a great success following the disruption caused by Covid 19 in the previous two years..
This years programme is back to normal with 7 nights of great theatre performed by some of our favourite groups as well as a few newer groups.
These are some of the best Amateur Drama Societies in Ireland and will be recognised by regular patrons of The Ivy Leaf Theatre in Castleisland.
