Events in the Neighbourhood

We felt it was time to share some of the amazing things that happen in, and around, our neighbourhood. We’ve taken a guideline of within half-an-hour’s drive as ‘the neighbourhood’. You are surely going to find something that will pique your interest, and maybe even tempt you to come and spend a weekend in the country. Some of these events/courses book out really fast, so if you are interested early booking is advised (links provided where possible).

I am sure there will be more to add, so do drop by again to see if there is something that attracts you.

Obviously with the current pandemic situation, we have no idea if any of these courses/events will, or can, happen. We have, in fact, moved a version of our own pig rearing course to ‘on-line’. Will keep this page updated with new dates.

Saturday, 29th August: Sourdough Course, Level 2 : Riot Rye Bakehouse & Bread School.

Saturday, 5th September: Introduction to free-range pig rearing here at Oldfarm.

Saturday, 12th September: Sourdough Course, Level 3 : Riot Rye Bakehouse & Bread School.

19th – 25th September: 50th Anniversary of the Irish Hot Air Ballooning Championships in Birr.

Recurring Events:

Birr Theatre runs an amazingly diverse range of events. Over the years we have attended many plays and music gigs. The best was probably Jerry Fish and the MudBug Club.

If antiques or vintage are your thing, check out Purcell Auctioneers. They hold monthly specialist auctions with weekend viewings and auctions are on Wednesday evenings and on-line so you can bid from the comfort of your home!

Or if you prefer more activity, there are lots of walks through and around the Slieve Blooms.
