Culture Night 2019

As part of the Culture Night celebrations King John’s Castle, Limerick will open its doors free of charge to the public from 5pm-8pm.

The phenomenon that is Culture Night, invites venues and public spaces across the island of Ireland to open up their doors and host a programme of free late-night entertainment, as part of an all-island celebration of arts, heritage and culture. Returning for its fourteenth year, Culture Night 2019 will take place on Friday September 20th.

For it’s cultural contribution, the castle will play host the wonderful Shannon Gospel Choir who will perform a very special outdoor concert in the courtyard from 7 - 8pm.

Having celebrated their 10th anniversary earlier this year, Shannon Gospel Choir is widely known for its contemporary style and balanced sound. With the stunning backdrop of the dramatic courtyard of this iconic castle, this promises to be a performance to remember. This is a capacity controlled event so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

While on site, visitors also have the opportunity to explore the castle’s visitor centre complete with state of the art interpretive activities and exhibitions. 21st century touch screen technology, 3D models and discovery drawers will connect you to tales of siege and warfare. Climb the castle towers and take in stunning views across Limerick City and the River Shannon.

Admission to King John’s Castle will be free of charge from 5pm-8pm on Culture Night Friday September 20th.
