Birr Vintage Week and Arts Festival

The Georgian heritage town of Birr has sash windows to spare and lots of contemporary culture to mix up with their love of heritage

Birr

4th August to 11th August 2017

Fine arts get a look in, as do antiques. Can you have a truly Irish festival without a Donkey Derby? Birr says no.

Literary events, hooleys in the pubs, and the Ormand Flying Club's Annual Fly-In make this Birr Bonanza one of the country's best festivals.

Busking on the streets and crafting on the newspaper sheets; whether you're an equestrian nut, a retro renegade or a sports superstar, you will adore this wonderful and varied celebration of Birr, in all its blessed eccentricity.
