    Hi,
    I notice that some gigs have admission prices alongside – is that in addition to the season ticket price, or is it included?

      Ian The Season Ticket permits entry to all events except the Cork Opera House, Douglas GAA Ceili, Cyprus Avenue Friday & Sunday (John Spillane gig there is part of the Season Ticket).

      If you do not want to buy a season ticket you can pay at the door or online the amount alongside.

    We are traveling to Ireland next week. Will there be tickets at the event? If we purchase tickets in advance can we pick them up when we get there?

    Reply
    • William.H - September 24, 2015 10:32 am

      Judy,

      If you purchase tickets on line you will get a code, bring that code to the door of the event you are attending to gain entry.
      You can also buy tickets at PRO MUSICA Oliver Plunkett St Cork or at the Door/box office of all the events. You would be very welcome.

    Hello, I am only interested in buying one-off tickets for a few shows at the Cork Folk Festival. However, I am only able to find season tickets. I went to this site (https://tickets.peoplesrepublicofcork.com/) and none of the shows are listed. Please can you let me know when these individual tickets go on sale and where? Thank you!!
    Cheers,
    Elizabeth
