Tedfest - Fr. Ted Festival

Tedfest is the world's first Father Ted Festival. The 4 day spectacular takes place every year in February on the picturesque Islands of Inis Mor (Inishmore) and Inis Oírr (Inishere) off the west coast of Ireland. There are all sorts of surreal and wacky events such as Nuns vs Priests volleyball, Ted's Got Talent and a Lovely Girls Competition. If you're looking for a completely different type of festival and you have a sense of adventure then this one is for you. Tickets are very limited so best to register in advance on the official website if you'd like to go to TedFest.
