The night includes a guided tour.
Just when you thought the stunning Nano Nagle Place couldn’t get more charming, they go and launch a new series of concerts happening after dark.
Prepare to be enchanted as the four super-intimate History & Harmonies nights begin with a tour of the magical tourist attraction at 6pm before the audience settles in at the Goldie Chapel.
The concerts, which are part of the East Cork Early Music Festival, include the first performance in modern times of a piece of Cork’s musical history.
A Novitiate mass by Hurka de Monti, who served as the Director of Music at the North Cathedral in the 1810s, was discovered in Nano Nagle Place’s archives. Now, decades later, it’s being performed again, this time by Cappella Lyrica and the Cork Baroque Players on Friday, October 15th.

Young organist and rising musical star Matthew Breen explores his favourite baroque repertoire on the chapel’s pipe organ on October 20th.
Finally, the Cork Baroque Players will share their favourite pieces of music from 17th and 18th-century composers on October 27th.
Tickets are just €10 for each night — including a tour and concert — and can be nabbed here.
