About Us

Each summer, West Cork Music brings the highest calibre of musical and literary experiences to the southwest coast of Ireland. It creates powerful, immersive experiences for its audiences, writers, musicians, and performers. It also contributes hugely to the cultural and economic vibrancy of Bantry town and the West Cork region.

Established in 1995, this voluntary organisation has developed into a charity that operates 3 world-class festivals, packed with performances and workshops. It also hosts concert series and education and outreach activities outside the festival period.

Now, West Cork Music has exciting plans to develop a dedicated arts venue and education hub in the heart of our harbour town so it can deliver world-class performances and music education throughout the year.
