Charleville Castle, Tullamore, Co. Offaly, Ireland

Garúa is an invitation-only, close-embrace, encuentro with high-quality music on a sprung wooden floor all set in a gothic Irish castle. It’s more than that though… Fundamental to a good life is the Craic and as well as wonderful DJs and all the trimmings we have a dedicated Craic delivery team. The Craic is about socialising, laughter and shared moments. Join us and be part of the magic.

The registration period runs from 1 April 2020, 12:00 pm to 1 June 2020, 12:00 pm.

Here is the lineup for the entire weekend. We suggest you come along early and join us on the first night. We have a few surprises, as well as a great venue, in one of the best pubs in Tullamore. A wonderful chance to shake off the week and get into your dance mode.

Wherever you stay in Tullamore you are 5min walk from The Townhouse where the shuttle bus runs to and from the castle each day. Here are the hotels we recommend:


Route A takes, at worst, 2 hours from landing in Dublin. The total return journey (bus and train) from Dublin Airport to Tullamore is just under €36.00. We would suggest you aim to land in Dublin no later than 14:00hrs on the day you travel. The very latest you could arrive is 16.30hrs. Equally, hiring a car and driving is a great way to see Ireland.
