The Blackwater Valley Opera Festival is one of the most picturesque music festivals that Ireland has to offer. The festival is centred around the stunning Lismore Castle, with a programme of opera music in the castle itself and in other historic houses in the Blackwater Valley. The centrepiece of the festival is a series of performances of Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri in the Lismore Castle Gardens. To complement this there will be a series of recitals by operatic talent from Ireland and abroad in venues like Dromore Yard, St Carthage’s Cathedral, and Cappoquin House. Aside from the salubrious venues and premium musical schedule, attendees can also eat at pop-up restaurants brought to the venues especially for the festival. What a treat. Tickets €10 - €200
