With the kind permission of Thomas and Valerie Pakenham, the acoustically wonderful Great hall of Tullynally Castle. The Castle is situated near Castlepollard, Co. Westmeath.
Tullynally has been the home of the Pakenhams, later Earls of Longford, for over 350 years.
The original 17th century fortified house was remodelled first as a comfortable Georgian mansion, then as a huge rambling gothic revival castle in the early 1800's, by the 2nd Earl of Longford.
It is still lived in as the family home, now probably one of the largest in Ireland to survive in private hands.
The interiors, part Georgian, part Gothic revival, have a fine collection of furniture and pictures.

Details for upcoming concerts and to book tickets will be listed here once we are able to confirm that concerts can proceed.
As you will be aware, the Covid 19 virus has placed severe restrictions on events and indoor gatherings. We have therefore had to cancel our planned October concert although we have agreed to honour our commitment to the performers and will pay their fees. We hope they will be able to perform for us again in the near future.
