West Cork Music is committed to presenting performances of the finest of music all year round. Outside of our festival-filled summer season, our Concert Series runs in the spring and autumn each year, featuring Irish and international soloists and ensembles in West Cork venues.

You'll be able to book online here from a few weeks before each concert, or you can call our office on +353 27 52788. You cannot book concessions online and will need to call us to do so.
