Cannonball Ireland, the action-packed supercar spectacle, will take place September 15-17 with proceeds going to the Irish charity The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.

The largest organized road trip in Europe, Cannonball Ireland takes a different route each year, showcasing the very best that Ireland has to offer.

Millions of fans have witnessed the "crazy" Cannonball convoy of cars pass through their town, city, or bend-in-the-road with nearly 200 supercars, wacky fun cars, and monster wheels every year.

Attendees are offered the unique opportunity to witness the world's most prestigious and sought-after supercars up close, from the awe-inspiring power of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren to the grace and elegance of Porsche, Aston Martin, and Maserati.

Now in its eleventh year, Cannonball Ireland attracts over 200,000 spectators with free family festivals all over the country every year.

Cannonball is renowned for its unique festival atmosphere: Brazilian Dancers, giant screens, music, and fanfare bring all the glamour of carnival, and live DJs, bands, and festivals in host towns get the party started.

The Cannonballers and celebrities in colorful costumes add to the melee. From Spiderman to Star Wars, Cat Woman to Wonder Woman, cheerleaders to Charlie’s Angels, Batman, the Joker, and more, it is a totally unique free family day out.

For Cannonball Ireland 2023, organizers are also calling on spectators to dress up in fancy dress with prizes for best dressed.

Cannonball Ireland has so far raised €1,538,602 for Irish charities. This year's official charity is The Jack and Jill Children's Foundation, an Irish children’s charity that funds and delivers in-home nursing care, respite support and end-of-life care for children from birth to six years of age who have highly complex and life-limiting medical conditions.
