Armagh’s much loved Georgian Festival marks the beginning of the Christmas festive season. Historic buildings open their doors and remember Richard Robinson, enthroned as Archbishop of Armagh in 1765, and responsible for transforming Armagh into a city of stunning Georgian architecture. From its literature to fashion, arts to food, this period is still intriguing today and the Georgian Festival gives visitors a true insight into life in Armagh City during the Georgian era.
Armagh’s ancient streets buzz with evocative Georgian costumed figures, street entertainment and festive market stalls, hosted by traders in traditional costume and offering high quality gifts and locally produced, artisan food and drink.
Relax, sample the festivities and dine alfresco at the Georgian Day hot food village with an abundance of street foods, artisan food and drink specialities to purchase and entertainment to enjoy.
