Hot House Flowers Friday 9th August 2019

Book a night of entertainment with us at the Ballymaloe Grainstore and enjoy our Ballymaloe House hospitality before and after Hot House Flower's performance.
Package inclusive of our early-bird 3 course pre-show supper in the Ballymaloe House dining room, followed by the show.
Next day, enjoy at your leisure our award-winning breakfast buffet after a night in one of our comfortable country-house bedrooms in the heart of the East Cork countryside minutes from the coast.

The world renown Hot House Flowers return to Ballymaloe Grainstore after a sold-out concert back in August 2017. The intimate, acoustic - but definitely rollicking! - concert features the trio of Liam O'Maonlai, Fiachna O'Braonain and Peter O'Toole.

Something amazing happens when Hothouse Flowers step onto the stage – something that has been shaped by more than thirty years of singing and playing all over the world. There is a sense of musical adventure - an impulse to reach new heights and depths in music where the unspoken aim is that the band and the audience become one and the world becomes a different place for a while.

Hothouse Flowers are a rock n’roll band, a traditional band, a soul band, and a jam band with their own organic jam spread on both sides of the bread!

Early dinner, tickets to the show and bed & breakfast is €220 per person sharing in a standard room.

Seán Keane, considered by many to be the most distinctive voice in Ireland, returns to the Grainstore stage where he will be joined by guitarists Pat Coyne and Fergus Feely.

An introduction to Seán Keane is unnecessary. Steeped in music, Seán has grown to musical maturity in an atmosphere where nothing is more important than playing a tune well and singing a song as it should be sung. Although heavily influenced by traditional styles and values, Seán cannot be categorised simply as a traditional singer. Whether the songs are traditional, folk, country or blues, he applies a unique voice and individual style that you will never forget.

Early dinner, tickets to the show and bed & breakfast in a standard room is €220 per person sharing.

Des Bishop’s new show tries to digest the incredible changes we have seen in society in the last year and a half. Me too, Consent, Trump, The 8th and how divided everyone is online.
