Islay Festival – Feis Ile 2018

The Islay Festival of Music and Malt for whisky fans around the World is one of the most important dates in the calendar.  The distilleries on the island and on neighbouring Jura, run open days throughout the week. The Festival is held in the last week of May every year. Now in their 32nd year, so they must be doing something right!

Feis Ile 2018 will be held from Fri 25th May – Sat 2nd June

The Feis Ile is the charitable organisation from which this now huge Festival of Music & Malt has evolved. The Voluntary Committee works collaboratively with the Distillery Community together with local Musicians and other interested people to showcase Islay.


  • Look out for the fresh seafood van. The local scallops fried in butter are fantastic!
  • Also worth looking out an Arbroath Smokie at Ardbeg Day. A Smokie in one hand and an Ardbeg 10 in the other, is a great way to spend the day!
