Cork Jazz Music Festival

Now in its 36th year, the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival just gets better and better! Running from the 23rd – 26th October in Cork City, this annual event attracts the most famous names in Jazz to perform at this prestigious event. Crowds descend from all over the world to attend this spectacular music fest and to this day, it is renowned as the world’s friendliest jazz festival!

What’s On?

The vibrant city of Cork will welcome over a 1,000 musicians who will entertain festival goers over this four day event. An anticipated 400 music sessions will take place across 70 venues, covering a broad range of jazz music styles including blues, Dixieland, swing, behop and jazz rock. Most venues are free of charge; so just sit back and enjoy a feast of musical delight. There’s also a host of fringe events taking place throughout the city including a Jazz Camp for students, a Jazz Choir, a Singers’ Corner, heaps of street entertainment and lots more.

Accommodation

Make sure to think ahead when it comes to where you will stay when attending the festival. There’s a good selection of accommodation in the city and surrounding areas, but it is advisable to book in advance. B&Bs are a good choice, as hosts are from the area and will be able to provide you information on Cork. They’re also great value for money!

Cork City Attractions

Cork is a city rich in historical and archaeological heritage and much of it is still in evidence today. The centre is spanned by many bridges and there is a real continental air about it. There is a wealth of must-see sights including Cork City Gaol, Old Midleton Distillery and Blarney Castle to name a few. With an array of fine eateries, friendly pubs, countless attractions and the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, I reckon October is a good month to take a trip to Cork City.
