Where to stay..


Armagh City is a unique place steeped in history and mythology, set in some of the most beautiful countrysides in Ireland. Armagh has preserved much of its centuries old character and today has some of the most beautiful 18th-century buildings in Ireland, including those on the Mall. Also on the Mall is the First Presbyterian Church, a handsome Gothic Revival building with tiered seating and splendid acoustics – the venue for two of the 2021 WKPF concerts. Armagh also has unparalleled modern facilities such as the new Armagh City Hotel, the Armagh Multi Media Access centre and the Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre. Festival patrons have a wide choice of accommodation which also includes a modern purpose-built hostel. All the festival venues are within easy walking distance.
