We are delighted to announce the sale of tickets for the 11th annual HerbFeast 2023. This is a celebration of the Herbal Medicine tradition, herbalists, and, of course, herbs.  Our annual event is open for professional herbalists and students of all traditions, and will take place on the 19th-21st of May, 2023. 

As always, the days will be packed with talks on herbal medicine and clinical practice, workshops, discussions and herb walks. We are thrilled to have some renowned speakers, including Henriette Kress, Danny O’Rawe, Bevin Clare, Courtney Tyler, Marie Power and others yet to be confirmed.


This year our festival-retreat-conference will be held in the beautiful location of Wells House & Gardens in County Wexford ( 
The venue has onsite accommodation in newly restored cottages for the first 45 who wish to stay on site at the Well’s House. There are 2-3 rooms in each cottage and sleeping 2 people in each room (shared).  Plus we have pre-booked the sister hotel – the 4 star Upton Hotel and cottages ( – which is situated about 5 min drive away in Kilmuckridge.

The all-inclusive residential ticket will cover the talks and workshops plus your accommodation on Friday and Saturday night, breakfast, tea/coffee and scones mid-morning, lunch and tea break in the afternoon and evening meal Saturday, with lunch on Sunday.

All meals will be served at Well’s House where the catering staff will provide meals for a variety of tastes and dietary requirements such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free, but also will include fish dishes for those who would prefer. 

No on site camping is available, but 5min drive away there is ample camping and glamping available in Kilmuckridgeholiday village.


Ticket prices are based on shared accommodation and as we expect them to sell out fast, we will be offering people a chance to secure a place by booking early and in order to facilitate this you can pay by 3 easy instalments of €105.00 (excluding Stripe fee) or the full ticket for €300.00 (excluding Stripe fee).



Any queries or questions email . 
Looking forward to seeing you all at HerbFeast 2023! 

Car-pooling and lifts

If anybody has a space for their fellow attendees in the car and would like to have company and share some petrol costs, please let us know.  Lifts will be needed  from Gorey town especially, as some people will be getting public transport from all over the place, including Dublin airport, to Gorey town, Co.Wexford. It’s only about a 15min drive to the venue and about 20min to the Upton Court Hotel & Cottages form Gorey.
Generally, if you travel from North/North East – Gorey would suit better, and Wexford or New Ross, if getting public transport from the South/South East. 


We have had the most amazing speakers from the herbal community come from all over the world to talk during our festival.

Growth in Connection

HerbFeast brings the greater herbal community of Ireland together as a way to network, exchange and grow.


We run all sorts of workshops during HerbFeast, from medicine making, yoga sessions to plant illustration, and much more!

Herb Walks

We run Herb Walks during the event led by knowledgeable herbalists. Expand your knowledge of the local wild flora of Eire.

HerbFeast – Ireland

HerbFeast is an annual non-for-profit herbal festival, run for Herbalists by volunteer Herbalists from the Community of Irish Herbalists (CIH).

It is the largest annual Herbalist festival in Ireland featuring local and world renowned herbalists and speakers sharing knowledge from their passion and experiences. 

Over the weekend, herbalists nationwide, and beyond, gather, network and share their experience in connection with nature and the many modalities and specialities nested within the community. It is an opportunity to connect with other people sharing the same vision.

The festival is packed with talks and activities such as seminars, workshops, herb walks and much more. The location changes almost every year to reach all counties of Ireland, North and South, West and East. Either way, all herbalists are welcome!

HerbFeast is ran by the Community of Irish Herbalists (CIH).


Have a peak at some photos from the previous years.

Every year at HerbFeast is different. We all love a little variety, and this brings forth fruitful opportunities to express who we are as herbalists. Have a look at some photographs from the previous years in our gallery!
