What to expect

Our world-class artists attract audiences of all ages and nationalities to the festival, with a common love for classical music and the piano. The festival is set in the small town of New Ross, County Wexford, offering a typical Irish experience with a range of boutique restaurants, hotels and shops, and not to mention plenty of stunning countryside.

The festival offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a terrific venue, St Mary’s Church, which benefits from exceptional acoustics for our concerts. To enjoy the full festival experience we offer a festival season ticket that gives our guests access to all concerts that take place over the five days. Find out more details on ticket prices and how to book.

Over the past couple of years we have introduced a jazz day that opens our festival each year. This new addition perfectly complements our classical music programme and equally celebrates the piano and pianists involved.

We also organise a piano masterclass, this year with Anne-Marie McDermott and two young pianists. These are designed especially for students and young pianists to gain valuable insight and advice from a world-class artist. These sessions are often very intimate with the opportunity to speak with the artist during the masterclass.
