Durrow Scarecrow Festival Tickets
There is only one ATM machine in Durrow, located at St. Canice’s Credit Union on Mary Street/Kilkenny Road. There is no card facility available for entry to the Scarecrow Village and whilst you can pay on the door in cash, we would recommend that you pre-purchase your entry tickets for the Scarecrow Village and the Fun’ky Zone as on busier days the ATM can run out of cash. We would also recommend that you bring some cash with you to prevent any disappointment if the ATM is out of order. Entry tickets can be scanned from your phone or printed, just ensure that you have the QR Code visible. Under 14’s must be accompanied by an adult.

The Durrow Scarecrow Festival in Co Laois made it into The Irish Times Ticket supplement’s Top 10 Festivals. The focus is very much on the family and teenagers are well catered for in the Teen Zone. Great fun plus the serious business of the All-Ireland Scarecrow Championship with a prize fund of €3,000 to be won. We love this festival.
Durrow Scarecrow Festival has to be one of the most fun ways to raise funding for a locality. You could find anything from Jedi Knight to Springsteen scarecrows. In Durrow no nook or cranny goes unused. The approach roads feature large bales tarted up to grab the eye of motorists. A former Esso station is set up as a themed exhibition area - fantastic stuff!
