The festival has grown over the last 7 years and this year we will again be hosting the event between Friday and Sunday. The 2014 event raised €6,000 for Kerry Cancer Support Group and €2,000 for the local school.

Annascaul Beerfest has two main aims:
  1. To donate money to charities and local causes
  2. To put on a great event doing it

After raising €8,000 for charity in 2014 we are now aiming to make an even bigger charitable donation to Down Syndrome Kerry in 2015.
