Open Your Door to the Fleadh
The Fleadh Committee wish the people of Mullingar and Westmeath to own this Fleadh as their own and get involved in as many ways as they possibly can.
With more than 500,000 visitors expected to visit Mullingar for the duration of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann between 2nd to 9th August next, we are calling on the people of Mullingar and surrounding areas to open their homes to Fleadh goers.
This will be a great way to get involved in this massive event. There are a number of ways that you can get involved. Homeowners can choose to give up their entire house for the duration of the Fleadh to families and visitors coming to Mullingar from all over the World. Or why not rent out a spare room that’s not used? Breakfast, self-catering the choice is up to you. You decide how to become involved and welcome the thousands of people visiting our area. To find a place to stay please visit our Where To Stay Section.
