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
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.
Time: 29th June to 1st July 2018
