The West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival brings the most exciting and passionate artists from Ireland and abroad to beautiful West Wicklow, for the enjoyment of all.

Fiachra Garvey, the festival’s founder and artistic director, grew up as a pianist and farmer in Ballyknockan, West Wicklow, on the glistening Blessington Lakes. Having performed in festivals all over the world, his desire to establish a festival in his native Wicklow was realised in 2017. Since then, the West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival has grown to include a flagship festival each May, and a Winter Weekend of concerts each November.

Russborough House, one of Ireland's most historic and iconic Palladian houses, and St. Mary's Church Blessington, are fitting venues, with their intimate surroundings, fascinating history and long association with music.

2022 marks the sixth year of the festival, and we look forward to extending a warm West Wicklow welcome to our artists and audiences for many years to come!
