Bishop Lucey Park Experience

This most popular story will be brought to life once more over the four weekends in the run up to Christmas with the return of the drummers drumming, the dancers dancing, the poor, confused French hens, the splendid swans a-swimming and … at least one new bird – which definitely won’t fit in that pear tree!

This entertaining and highly visual experience will once more feature performances from local community groups, with artists and street entertainers both from Cork and further afield, along with some new creative surprises to delight all the family on their stroll through our city centre park.


Opening hours 4pm – 8pm

  • Friday, 25th November to Sunday, 27th November
  • Friday, 2nd December to Sunday, 4th December
  • Friday 9th December to Sunday 11th December
