A new music and comedy festival is coming to Cork.

Courtesy of Coughlan’s Live Promotions – the good people behind the gem that is the Cork bar and venue of the same name – The Great Beyond will take place at the sublime 18th-century county mansion Ballinacurra House in Kinsale across Saturday, September 11 to Sunday, September 12.

And the line-up is nothing to be sniffed, either. Across the two days, BellX1, Lisa Hannigan, The Frank & Walters, Wallis Bird, The Scratch, Marc O’Reilly, Bernard Casey, Laura O’Mahony, Naked Animals, Paddy Dennehy, Rowan, Ultan Conlon, Cry Monster Cry, Robert John Ardiff, Míde Houlihan, The Céilí All-Stars, Les Salamandas, and the Cork City Samba Band will perform.

Individual day tickets, which are €100 per person, will go on sale 10am on Friday, August 6 from, and will be sold in pods of 4 and 6.
