Sunrise Frequently Asked Questions
EVENT CANCELLED: Due to a number of unforeseen circumstances it is with deep regret we have decided to cancel Sunrise 2018. This decision was made with the best interests of our Garden and our attendees in mind. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience. We have loved running this festival and we hope to be back in the future.
Q) Do you have tents/campers already set up there or do you bring your own?
A) People who are planning to camp overnight must bring their own camping gear, though we are looking into the possibility of providing Glamping this year... watch this space!
Q) What are the camping facilities?
Camping facilities are being upgraded this year and will be located close to the car park and Festival site. Please see the Camping section opposite for details.
Q) We have a caravan not a campervan- is this ok?
A) Yes of course. Those who chose to bring a campervan, caravan or trailer tent will park in a separate area to the tent camping area and will incur a charge of €30.
Q) Will the site be wheelchair accessible?
Yes, the festival main site will be wheelchair accessible and is open to people of all abilities. There will be a dedicated wheelchair accessible campsite located close to the Visitor Centre with all the same facilities as mentioned above. There is a wheelchair toilet at the Visitor Centre and temporary wheelchair toilets in locations throughout the site. The outer parts of Brigit’s Garden- meadows and Esker wood areas are not, however, wheelchair accessible.
Q) Can I bring my dog?
A) Unfortunately, no. Brigit’s Garden will be operating a “no pets policy” on the days of the festival for the wellbeing of all the children and families attending.
Q) Is there a discount for Brigit's Garden Members?
A) Yes, all Brigit's Garden Members are entitled to a 10% discount on the ticket price. However, if availing of any other special offer or discount, this additional discount will not apply.
Q) Where is Brigit's Garden?
A) Driving along the N59 from Galway city you will pass through a small town called Moycullen. Follow the festival traffic signs. A few kilometres after this you will reach the small village of Roscahill. You will then see a brown heritage signpost on the left hand side of the road with Brigit's Garden name on it pointing to Turn Right. Take this right and the entrance to Brigit's Garden is on the left approximately 2km from this turn (after the community centre and church on the left hand-side).
For those using GPS or Google Maps, they may direct you turn right at Connemara Motors but it is more efficient if you continue onwards with the festival traffic signs.
