Fancy an opera by Antonin Dvorak, Georges Bizet or Kurt Weil? Artramon may be away from the bustle of life, but that does not mean you have to do without the touches of culture. Just six short kilometres away is the lively harbour town of Wexford which fort he last 60 years has been hosting an annual Opera Festival in October.
The two-weeks of the Wexford Opera Festival is without doubt the musical highlight of Ireland's south-east – if not of the whole island. The town is part of the festival so in addition to the star attractions you will find a host of musical events scattered around the town.
The Wexford Opera is not only the oldest in Ireland but for many years was the only one. In 2008 the town opened a spectacular new opera house partly designed by Ciaran McHahon and Keith Williams and was showered with international architecture prizes.
ARTRAMON. YOUR BOX AT THE WEXFORD FESTIVAL OPERA.
Discover the most wonderful way to savour the Wexford Festival. Stay at Artramon. For the festival weeks we offer special arrangements with breakfast and dinner, we will order your tickets, as well as ferry you to and from the Opera House. And to finish off the evening you can then relax with a whisky by the open fire or play a round of billiards.
The Wexford Festival takes place every year in the second half of October and can ideally be combined with some hunting. And if you have come to hunt, then don't let the music pass you by. Talk to us about your arrangements.
