Our 2022 Programme

24 June – 3 July 2022

Welcome back to the West Cork Chamber Music Festival! Fingers crossed we can all be in Bantry for a live Festival in June 2022.

The 2022 Programme includes the complete Weinberg quartet cycle played by Quatuor Danel, the Biber Mystery Sonatas played by Ensemble Vintage Koln, new works from Brett Dean and Deirdre Gribbin, as well as programmes from Festival Favourites, like Mairéad Hickey, Johannes Moser, Dana Zemtsov and the Doric Quartet.


– We offer 10% off if booking 10 concerts or more and 20% off if booking 20 concerts or more. Please visit or call the office to benefit from those offers, as they are not available when booking online.

– We also offer 50% concessions for most event to those aged 16 and under, and 15% for students (also available online). No other concessions are available.

Explore our Artists Page to see who will be performing in Bantry this year.

The full programme can be downloaded as a simple text PDF here. (Updated 27 April)

Our full colour brochure can be viewed as a PDF here.

If you prefer, you can also download and print a booking form here.
