IRELAND'S EDGE is a multidisciplinary creative event series that hails from Dingle, Co Kerry, on the southwest coast of Ireland. Dingle is about as far west as you can go in Europe, but we don't think of the edge as being peripheral. Instead, it's a place from which we can ask different questions, find new perspectives, experiment and innovate.
At IRELAND'S EDGE we believe the best version of our future will only be realised by fruitful collaborations and collisions between the arts, technology, innovation, storytelling and human experience. We regard it as imperative that culture be given a central role as we try to plan creatively and effectively for the future.
We bring all this to life in a direct, experiential form, bringing seemingly disparate and diverse voices together to discuss culture, power, representation and more.
Featuring conversations and performances from our live events, as well as special bonus content, Ireland's Edge - The Podcast hears from a kaleidoscopic range of voices, all at the cutting edge of what they do. Tune in for mind-expanding discussions on transhumanism, the Irish language, space exploration, economics, the hidden history of the banjo, Taylor Swift and chaos theory - and almost everything in between!
What a year it has been! From pandemic, to war, to political upheaval, the news just never seemed to stop in 2022.

In front of a live audience at Ireland’s Edge in Dingle, Aoife and Séamas reeled in 2022 to look back on the year that was with a slight satirical glint in their eyes..
