Welcome to the Féile Brian Ború.

The Féile celebrates the life and legacy of Brian Ború (founder of the O’Briens) –  the most famous son of the historic twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina.

Through our annual festival, the Féile Brian Ború committee aim to celebrate Ireland’s Greatest High King and keep alive the name of the Great Brian Ború in his native place, Killaloe/Ballina, from where he ruled this country!

Killaloe and Ballina may never again regain their status as Ireland’s capital, but they will certainly prove the place to be, or to visit in the future.

We hope you will join us in the beautiful twin-towns of Killaloe & Ballina.
