Irelands Ancient EastIt’s never too early to start planning!

Cork International Choral Festival is proud to be at the maritime gateway of Ireland’s Ancient East path. As Cork’s oldest Festival, it is guaranteed to bring you on a journey steeped in history as well as cultural prestige.

It is this special union of times gone by and story-telling that creates true magic for the ultimate unforgettable experience. Ireland’s Ancient East offers tourists a chance to peel back the layers of time and experience 5,000 years of European history in a compact area, all starting in Cork.

To aid you in your Ancient East discovery, the Cork International Choral Festival has developed key Festival packages to help you begin your journey. These 5 day packages have been developed in association with some of our key accommodation partners offering the visitor the following perks:

  • 5 nights’ accommodation and breakfast each morning in Cork
  • A Festival Ticket which offers access to all Choral Festival events over the 5 days of the Festival
  • Negotiated discounts in a range of partner restaurants.

In addition we offer the opportunity to visit a number of tourist attractions around the city and county including Shandon Bells, Cork City Gaol, Blarney Castle and Fota Wildlife Park where you’ll surely make lots of choral memories!

The team at Cork International Choral Festival are experienced in delivering these itineraries and will be happy to work with you to ensure that the needs of your tour group can be met and surpassed.
