FÈIS ÌLE 2022 : ISLAY FESTIVAL
Festival of music et malt
Every year, at the end of May, the island of Islay welcomes culture and malt enthusiasts from all backgrounds for its Fèis Ìle festival that will be held this year from May 28 to June 5, 2021.
Created in 1984, the festival’s ambition was to revive the Gaelic language and culture, and it now offers more and more diverse activities. On the program: traditional music concerts, Gaelic lessons, golf, bowling, workshops, conferences, dances and of course, whisky tastings.
Indeed, in recent years, all the distilleries of Islay organize open days throughout the week of the festivities, which makes this festival an unmissable event for lovers of malt and peat, all in the magical setting of the island of Islay.
Naturally, Le Comptoir Irlandais is represented at each edition!
Scotland, its island of Islay and its culture
After two years of virtual festival, Fèis Ìle is back in a 10-day face-to-face edition.
This end of May is an opportunity to celebrate Scottish culture, the magnificent island of Islay and all the treasures produced there, first and foremost peated whisky.
