Travel warning

Liverpool has been updating many of its stations, platforms and routes. We recommend keeping an eye on Merseytarvels updates for any delays, station closures, replacement services or issues to avoid any complitcations.

Festival venues

The Liverpool Irish Festival takes place in almost 30 venues. We recommend you using our locations tab to find your venue.

Official map

Each year we devise a festival map, which can be found in our brochure and the centre spread of our newspaper, usually available near festival time at all our venues and cultural hubs around the city.

The Festival and food

Most events are uncatered, unless food is specifed. If you are new to a city, finding food can be daunting. There are great places to eat in Liverpool, with incredible cuisines from most nations and across all price ranges. For areas in which to find a good selection of eateries, we recommend Hope Street, Bold Street and Castle Street. A good place to start is Independent Liverpool, which has a great list of independent restaurants in the city.
