This fall, Ballyfin Demesne is organizing two weekends that present a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy privileged access to great collections in two of the most significant country houses in Ireland. Including lectures by leading authorities, participants will stay at Ballyfin for two nights and learn about its history and its contents. On the Saturday guests will travel across the beautiful Slieve Bloom Mountains to Birr Castle.
Ever since the days of the blind harpist in the Great Hall of a medieval castle, music has been inextricably associated with the Great Houses of Ireland. In celebration of this long and happy connection, in November Ballyfin is holding a magical weekend in which great music can be appreciated in some of the most beautiful interiors in Ireland.
