The DMA resident home since 1987
Tullynally, a neo-gothic castle set in the beautiful lake country of Westmeath, has been inhabited by the Pakenham family for over 370 years. Ennobled through a marriage to heiress Elizabeth Cuffe, the Pakenhams became Earls of Longford in the 18th century. The Great Hall where the concerts take place has been the venue for musical entertainments ever since and has the wonderful acoustics of a gothic hall. The original 1803 organ still graces the room, which is hung with family arms, paintings and military memorabilia and warmed by an enormous fireplace. There is no doubt that it is one of the most romantic venues for classical concerts in Ireland: intimate, yet grandiose; historic, yet continuing to provide a home to the modern generation.
Apart from hosting DMA concerts during the Autumn and Spring seasons each year, Tullynally is open to visitors form April 1st to September 31st each year. For details and news and event, see here.
