Hagstrav beer measures


The front bar is gonna be back for those who want to relax with a full 330ml out in the Wild Atlantic sunshine….

We’re keeping servings to 200ml. We also had lots of feedback to say most beer fans wanted to taste as many of the 60 beers as possible, but with servings of 330ml, it just wasn’t possible without wasting valuable, gorgeous beer!

Hagstrav payment tokents


The token system remains dead simple – €3 per token, 1 token per drink. Tokens also used for food, swag, take out, and charity donations.

The entire festival is token payment and we ask attendees to only bring Debit/Credit Card payment please! 

Hagstrav ticket pricing


We have invested over the past 5 years in the infrastructure, equipment and people we need to make the festival happen. We have also seen most costs increase by 30-200% over past years! Also worth noting that all profits generated will go to our local charity partner for 2023.

Your ticket will get you access, a guide, a glass, drink tokens, entertainment and a free train ride back to Sligo. You’ll get over 8 hours of access to beers not poured in Ireland before, in the company of the brewers who make the beer. Amazing, right?

Hagstrav train


As beautiful as Ballymote is, we won’t leave you stranded! If there’s one thing we’ve heard loud and clear it is that the train is not to be missed! And so through our friends in Irish Rail, the train will return and collect us all on the Saturday night to transport us all to Sligo for the Beer Crawl.

We are adjusting opening times to suit the train times arriving from Sligo and Dublin, and to allow day trippers have a longer day at the festival.

We will have some stewards on hand to help get you safely on the train, but we’d like everyone ensure we bring our waste with us after each train journey over the day!

No matter where else you are coming from, Irish rail have trains running from Dublin and Sligo all weekend that will drop you to the Brewery. Just check out for more info.

Hagstrav bands 1


You all loved the bands in 2022, so we have a cracking line up of brilliant live acts to see!

Starting the day off with a bang from Sligo train station, THE LIX BRASS BAND will be bringing old-school traditional swing and jazz with some contemporary influences, keeping the energy up all the way out to the brewery.

Kicking in after is BRIAN from BRAND NEW RETRO, who will be doing 3 sets over the course of the day!

Joining us the way from Westport is CROOKED TRAD, a trad-rock and fold band who’ll surely get you off your feet.

Finally, TONY T AND THE HOPPENHEIMERS will be topping off the day with 90s and noughties anthems, to get you ready for the big noisy train and after party in Sligo…
