General Éigse Policies



There is no alcohol for sale at ÉIGSE but you can bring your own! We ask you to drink responsibly only after the talks and workshops are finished.


Unfortunately, due to indoor space restrictions, if fully booked, we cannot sleep less than 3 people in the dorm rooms and nor can we guarantee single-sex accommodation  (though we do try)! If this is a concern or priority for you then we would ask you to consider camping or staying in one of the local B&Bs offsite as an alternative.


Please be aware that access to the accommodation and dining area is up a number of stairs, if you have any mobility issues or concerns please contact a member of the Organisation Team in advance-

Children and minors

This is a child-friendly event but not child-centered. Children / minors and young people under 16 are free, but accommodation and food tickets must be purchased in advance, if necessary. We encourage camping as the best option if you are coming with minors.

Please register children/minors on arrival and each one must be accompanied by a registered responsible parent or adult guardian at ALL times.

Smoking and vaping

Smoking and / or vaping are both strictly prohibited indoors,during ceremony / ritual and outdoors during workshops / talks. Please be mindful of other people nearby if you are smoking or vaping. 

Litter and rubbish

Please bring ALL your rubbish and recycling home with you, nothing is to be left on-site at the end of the weekend.

Clean up

As we are a community-based gathering; washing up, cleaning up, tidying the site etc is a communal responsibility after all meal times, talks / workshops and at the end of the festival itself. Time has been allocated on the last day for this and we really appreciate your help!

Refund Policy

Tickets are transferrable. Please contact us by email and we can amend the names on your ticket/s. If you need to cancel your ticket for any reason, we offer a 100% refund up to 90 days before the event and 50% between 30 and 90 days. Unfortunately, cancellations within 30 days of the event cannot be refunded but can be transferred.

Antisocial Behaviour 

The Organisers reserve the right to ask anyone to leave at any time over the weekend due to antisocial or offensive behaviour.


No dogs allowed at workshops or Night Court. You must clean up after your dog/s and you are responsible for it / them at all times and they must be kept on a lead
