Festivals

Cork is Ireland’s Festival and Events Capital hosting more than 24 – that’s right 24!  major festivals every year plus hundreds of smaller events. Take part in our renowned St Patrick’s Festival in March or come listen to over 100 of the world’s most amazing choirs perform in the International Choral Festival in May each year.

Sample your choice of Cork’s own Black Stuff, (we have two stouts brewed in Cork - Beamish and Murphy’s – and they rival the Dublin stuff any day!!) as you listen to the best of Irish Traditional music each September at the Beamish Cork Folk Festival. Or groove it up at Ireland’s premier Jazz Festival - the Cork Guiness Jazz Festival, in October each year.

In this section, you'll find detailed listings of almost everything happening in the city, complete with dates and opening times, event tickets prices, images and more.  For a full Festival listing please see our festival calender or use the search events tool below or browse the categories on the right  to find what you're looking for.
