Cork International Choral Festival April 27th – May 1st, across the City


The Cork Choral Festival takes place around the May Bank Holiday Weekend every year and there is loads happening around the city. Some are free and while others are ticketed. See the website for full programme and details.

My favourite part of the Festival is Shandon Sunrise. This year it is taking place on Sunday May 1st at 6:05am. With singing from the Clock Tower from Cathal O’Boyle and the Cork Chamber Choir to welcome in the dawn. This is a truly wonderful experience. It is followed by an ecumenical service in St Anne’s. Come along to this FREE event! More details here.
