Bruce Lyon, Festival 2015 Keynote Speaker

Bliss Festival creates events, & provides online resources, that aim to foster & promote Sexual Freedom, Health & Pleasure in Mind, Body & Spirit. Each event is different and the values & intentions behind them remain constant - that of deep care & respect for one's self & others.

It’s rare in ‘’the west’’, particularly in Ireland, that space is openly given or taken to discuss & explore sexuality & this is exactly what our events aim to do, including our flagship event, the Bliss Festival!

Beth Wallace, Bliss Ireland Founder & Director, speaking at Festival 2015

All events welcome all people over the age of 18, regardless of any labels you may choose to place upon yourself or that others may choose to place upon you. Previous attendees at events have called themselves gay, heterosexual, bisexual & label-less, male, female, genderless, trans, from many countries speaking many languages, ranging in age from their late teens to early 70s, black, white, Asian, single, partnered, monogamous, polyamorous, celibate etc – it’s a very diverse community, which is something we’re proud of!

Please note; due to costs incurred & lost due to a legal action taken by 2 people to prevent the 2015 Festival taking place, on moral grounds, there will be no Festival in 2016. The future of the Festival & the project as a whole is currently under review. Click this link if you would like to donate to the continuation of the work of Bliss Ireland.
