Culture Night begins with Choral Evensong at 6.15pm (30 mins) which has its roots in the ancient monastic offices of Vespers and Compline, and is sung in the Cathedral on Fridays at 6.15pm and Sundays at 7pm, from September to June. Responses are sung by a Cantor, and the Cathedral choir (normally adults on Fridays) sing the canticles – Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis – along with an Anthem.

All are welcome to immerse themselves in this historic and peaceful act of worship.

There will also be a short performance by the Cathedral Choir at 7.45pm – a sample of the Cathedral’s almost 700 year old musical tradition.

Guided tours will be available at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.

Those who prefer to come and look around for themselves are also most welcome.

The Cathedral welcomes about 30,000 visitors from all over the world each year. From the cannon ball, to the historic Cathedral Organ in a pit, to some of the best stained glass and mosaics in Ireland, to over 1,500 sculptures and carvings, to the intricate chancle ceiling, Saint Fin Barre’s is one of the finest examples of its type in Western Europe.
