We have now moved to the festival site for Vantastival 2019!!

The June bank holiday weekend is upon us once more and the Vantastival site at Beaulieu House & Gardens opens at 2.30pm on 31st May! The car park will be open from 1pm.

All you need to know….

Access on Friday evening only comes as part of a full THREE-DAY pass purchased in advance. Online ticket sales end at 8am on Friday 31st May. After that, 2-day camping and single day tickets will be available at the gate until sold out.  Friday is a gentle ease in to the festival with as limited programme of events: The Woodland Stage, Firestone Stage, the O’Haras Tow Bar and our new stage Trad Folkin’ Rocks will all be open, while the Main Stage, Crow’s Nest, the GlassHouse and The Enchanted Garden kids’ area will open on Saturday. All our traders and many of our additional features like the funfair will be open on Friday.

Box Office Opening Hours

Friday 2.30pm – 11.30pm
Saturday 10.30am – 11pm
Sunday 10.30am – 10pm


Please note: there are no single day tickets for 14-17 year olds this year. Teens will only be admitted when accompanied by a parent who holds a weekend camping ticket. Friends or siblings over the age of 18 will not be accepted as the accompanying adult.
If you have a 2-day ticket and wish to upgrade to a full weekend ticket, you can do so at the festival box office on Friday.

There is also no ATM on site, so bring as much cash as you think you’ll need for the weekend.PLEASE BRING WARM CLOTHES. Even when the weather is great it gets very cold at night!

Vantastival is a BYOB event. Stop off at Eurospar on your way out of Drogheda to get all your supplies – it’s the last shop before the festival site!  No glass bottles are allowed on site so please transfer any beverages into safe plastic options. 

There will also be a bar on site serving refreshing pints of craft beer from O’Haras, our craft brewing partners this year, and we’ll also have cans available for purchase! ID will be required at the bar from anyone who looks under the age of 21. The only acceptable forms of ID are passport, driving license, Garda Card or EU National Identity Card.

BBQs are permitted but must be up off the ground and are used at your own risk. No disposable barbecues sitting on the grass.

Dogs are permitted but must be kept on a lead at all times and make sure you clean up after them!

Only cars staying on site can drive into the car park.  There is a small charge for the car park imposed by Beaulieu House, to go towards the upkeep of the estate and gardens. The charge is €5.

Cars won’t be permitted to drive into the campsite to unload, with the sole exception of those pulling caravans, which will have to be removed once the caravan is unhitched.

There will be no entry to the festival site once the box office has closed each night.

Beaulieu House is just a 5 minute drive from Drogheda, or 10 minutes from Drogheda Bus Station. This year again we’re running a shuttle bus service from Drogheda to Beaulieu House and Merchant’s Quay at Pine World, N Quay, Drogheda (click link for directions)

It will run every half hour from 11.30am on Saturday and Sunday and costs €3 each way.

And finally, enjoy the festival… we’ll see you on the other side!!!
