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!
