Thoughts on last years Sunrise
The festival was amazing! The most beautiful setting and so many activities and music and dance and circus fun and animals. We had the best weekend ever. Well done to the organisers, staff and entertainers, ye were all so kind and welcoming. Please, please, please do it again next year! Kate Dugan

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.
