Kilkenny City Online: View all News Updates

The Kilkenny Cat Laughs is thrilled to announce our new dates for 2020 – Thursday November 12th – Monday November 16th. We couldn’t go a year without seeing you guys.


This year’s festival will be slightly different to what we are used to. We’ve a lot to figure out between now and then in order to keep your health and safety a priority but in the meantime HOLD THOSE DATES FOR US.

If you had tickets for June and these new dates don’t suit, get onto us.



Kilkenny Cat Laughs festival is Ireland’s best loved comedy festival. This annual invasion is a comedic pilgrimage and heralds the start of the summer season since 1995. The festival celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this year!

Over the years Kilkenny Cat Laughs has played host to international and domestic world class comedy. And they keep coming back! This festival is renowned for treating both talent and the audience to a warm welcome. Set against the convivial atmosphere and stunning venues throughout Kilkenny, at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East, the Cat Laughs delivers year after year. Sunday afternoon’s football match between Irish comedians and “the Rest of the World” becomes a bigger attraction every year. Karl Spain’s hilarious commentary made this event unmissable.
