Ballymaloe Craft & Design Fair

Ballymaloe Craft & Design Fair is back for its sixth year this November 21th & 22nd running from 10am - 6pm each day. It's bigger and better than ever.

After Paul Henry

‘AFTER PAUL HENRY’ is a collaborative project by archaeologist and photographer Brian MacDomhnaill and painters Gentian Lulanaj and Paul McKenna.
Paul Henry (1876-1958) is Ireland’s most celebrated landscape painter. His depictions of the west of the country in particular have become synonymous with a romantic view of Ireland: unspoiled and traditional. Apart from the universal appeal of the images there is also a real sense of an artist engaging with a landscape and delighting in its drama, textures and hues.

Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill

Irish fiddle virtuoso Martin Hayes and American guitarist Dennis Cahill possess a rare musical kinship, ranking them among the most memorable partnerships of our era. Together they have garnered international renown for taking traditional music to the very edge of the genre, holding listeners spellbound with their slow-building, fiery performances.

"If your live music rations were limited to a single concert in the entire year, then you’d be either crazy or foolish if you didn’t pass that precious time in the company of Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill" - The Irish Times

Derek Ryan - An Exclusive Intimate Show of Acoustic Country

Derek Ryan, who was named Entertainer of the Year by the Sunday World, has always been applauded for his breathtaking performances on his huge concert tours. Now, however, Derek has decided to strip down his show and is bringing this intimate, acoustic concert to just five venues around Ireland.

Ballymaloe Grainstore is delighted to be among the five, and the only venue south of Donegal to host the 'New King of Country’.
