What's On

Here you can discover what’s on and find cracking events that will make your visit even more memorable! Armagh hosts three major festivals each year. The much-loved Georgian Festival celebrates the city’s 18th century Georgian heritage. The ‘Home Of St Patrick’ Festival hosts many exciting Irish and international artists and events, coming together in recognition of the strong connection with the Spiritual Father of Ireland. The Food & Cider Weekend celebrates Armagh’s famous apple orchards and the fabulous local cuisine of one of Ireland’s top food destinations. Foodie events are an integral part of the calendar so prepare for a taste sensation as you eat your way through our local delicacies and savour our award-winning artisan ciders. The area has a vibrant cultural scene and lovers of theatre, art and literature are spoilt for choice with countless events to ignite the imagination. We are also a fun destination for families where you can do anything from meeting the ancient Celts at The Navan Centre & Fort to bird watching at break of dawn at Lough Neagh or building your own rocket at Armagh Planetarium!
