Since 2013, we have been inviting teachers, school leaders, and education stakeholders to gather at FÉILTE to celebrate the remarkable profession and innovations happening in Irish schools every day.  

What is FÉILTE?   

FÉILTE is an acronym, and it stands for Festival of Education In Learning and Teaching Excellence. It is a celebration of teaching excellence in Ireland, and takes place in October each year, coinciding with World Teachers' Day.  

Reasons to attend?      

  • Choose from 16 workshops, 38 exhibitor showcases, and 12 Gasta sessions.

  • See the local talents in the Laois Creative Hub.

  • Visit the Teaching Council stand where we will be happy to answer any questions you have for us.    

  • Attendance can count towards your Croke Park hours (subject to approval by your principal). Attendance certificates will be available after the event. 

  • Newly Qualified Teachers meet one of the criteria for Droichead, as this event qualifies as a professional learning activity.

Where will FÉILTE 2023 be held?

How can I get tickets for FÉILTE 2023?  

Tickets are available through | Eventbrite. There is a fee of €10 which is refunded upon attendance at the event. This fee is charged to allow us to manage the attendance numbers on the day for health and safety reasons.  

FÉILTE promises to be a fantastic occasion for teachers to come together, learn, share experiences, and celebrate their profession while exploring the theme of 'Creativity in Action'.
