HOPE IS NOT OPTIMISM, WHICH EXPECTS THINGS TO TURN OUT WELL. BUT SOMETHING ROOTED IN THE CONVICTION THAT THERE IS GOOD WORTH WORKING FOR.
HIBERNACLE is a 300-year-old word for Winter Retreat.

This December we will welcome in the strangeness of 2020 with a week-long collaborative pilgrimage to Doolin on Ireland’s West Coast.
Hibernacle will bring together artists, musicians, presenters, streaming, production crew, food collaborators, local food and foraging and create something unique to finish the year on a creative high for everyone involved, from artist to audience.
The week will end with 4 live streamed events on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening and a kid’s focused event on Saturday afternoon, giving people a unique window into this musical adventure.
In a year where we have been isolated from each other and connecting, sharing songs and ideas has been difficult, Hibernacle will create an opportunity to come together safely in bright airy spaces and gather inspiration through this cross-genre, musical adventure.
The live-streamed events will include multiple performances showcasing collaborations and content from the week and giving the public a unique window into this musical adventure.
Doolin is the traditional music capital of Ireland and aside from hosting many music festivals, which sits on the edge of Ireland’s West Coast providing the most inspirational surrounds.
Join in from the comfort of your own Hibernacle and seek musical solace in this shelter for creativity.
Full show schedule and tickets go on sale on
Monday, December 7th from https://hibernacle.ie/
