St. Mary's of the Sloes

The Reverend has opened his doors to the KIFF since we moved to Killarney. St. Mary’s Church of the Sloes is a beautiful little church in the heart of Killarney town, right across from both the cinema Killarney and Killarney house. Killarney (in Irish: Cill Airne) means Church of the Sloes. It serves a small Church of Ireland congregation, tourists and once a year, us KIFFers. As well as the films, the stunning stained glass windows, along with the pipe-organ and the decorations are worth a look.

killarney house

The present Killarney House was once the stable block of a French chateau-style residence that you would find in Normandy and Brittany. Situated across the road from the cinema, this is where the KIFF industry day takes place. Industry day events include workshops, chaired discussions and presentations. The grounds are as impressive as the house, perfect for a stroll in the midst of a marathon viewing session and the staff are a particularly friendly bunch.

ANAM centre

ANAM, the Killarney Cultural Centre is a stone’s throw from our main venue and a great additional space for the Festival.

St James’ Church, Dingle

Home to renowned folk concerts and the Other Voices TV series, St James` Church is a unique cultural space in Dingle, famous for its wonderful acoustics and intimate atmosphere. The beauty of this historic church adds something very special to the KIFF film experience.
