Forest Fest Weekend: Afternoon Tea & Chill out at Nearby SOLAS
Following the tremendous success of last weekend’s French Festival @ SOLAS, Emo & Portarlington will be the centre of the music scene this weekend as the Forest Fest music event comes to town. Why not take some time out to relax and chill @ SOLAS, which is less than 10 minutes away from the concert site and only 3 minutes to the Heritage Hotel, Killenard.
David Maher of SOLAS explains, “SOLAS provides the perfect location to visit during this music weekend as we are so close to the venue and have so much to offer visitors in terms of great food, our farmers market, plants, art, and culture on our 5-acre garden campus. It is great that Laois is now hosting so many cultural events and very much in keeping with the ethos of SOLAS which is all about Sustainability, Relaxing, Food and great carefree times with family and friends.”
