Support the festival

Words By Water has been running since 2017. Over the years so much of what we do has been made possible by the generous support of so many individuals and businesses in our community. Friends and sponsors help us make the event a success for the local area and everyone involved.

We hope our festival continues to be a vibrant addition to autumn in Kinsale for many years to come.
