On-site Accommodation will be open for arrival from 2pm on the Wednesday before the festival with departure on the Monday following the Festival.

Full details regarding carparking will be available soon.


Although Alcohol will be on sale at the Dalriada Festival we will however be closely monitoring the consumption of Alcohol in ensuring a pleasant and safe environment for all our visitors. You must be over 18 to purchase alcohol and you will be asked for ID, either your Driving License or Passport upon sale.

The Dalriada Festival is a family event therefore we will not tolerate disruptive behaviour arising from consuming too much Alcohol. The Festival organisers, security and / or police will remove any such person/s from the Festival.


To avoid separating from your children, please give your kids the same advice you would if you were anywhere else: don't go off with strangers or anyone without telling you first. If they get lost, have them ask for help from a policeman, a security steward, any Festival staff with a radio, another adult with children, or go to one of the Information Points or entrance gates.

It is really helpful if children have your mobile number on them so we can contact you. We would advise that you write your mobile number on your child's arms using a marker pen.

If you lose your children ask for advice at any Information Point, or from any Festival official. Found kids are looked after at the Mobile Police Unit or the Festival Management Control Suite adjacent to the Police Unit.

Please note there are no creche facilities at the Dalriada Festival. You should make arrangements within your group of friends and partners for someone to be supervising your children at all times.


Dogs are allowed at the Dalriada Festival but MUST be on a lead at all times. We must ensure the festival is an enjoyable experience for all our visitors therefore failure to comply with our 'dogs on a lead policy', will result in you being asked to leave the event. 

Visitors who are staying on-site thoughtout the weekend, either in Caravans, Motorhomes or Camping, can also bring dogs, but again they MUST be kept on a lead at all times.
