Birr Festival
of Music

Birr Festival of Music is an annual classical music festival

in Birr, Co. Offaly.


In 2022, Birr Festival of Music returned to full capacity and our usual dates over the May Bank Holiday with our most ambitious programme to date!

Our 2022 programme was full of exciting concerts, recitals, masterclasses and more in a range of beautiful and historic venues across Birr.

This year, Birr Festival of music commissioned a brand new project for Birr Young Voices: Soundscapes of Nature. Inspired by the natural world, created and animated by award-winning Birr artists, animator Finn Nichol and composer Laura Sheils, it involved 30 local children and some of our previous Trench Award winners.
