The Armagh Rhymers at the Urban Orchard


Join The Armagh Rhymers on a journey through Armagh City's secret urban orchard involving masks and music, merriment, and mirth. An exciting and enchanting celebration of the long tradition of the apple in Armagh.

Meet the word-famous Armagh Rhymers on their home ground and enter the ancient, magical, and mysterious world of mummers.
Your experience will begin with an introduction to The Armagh Rhymers and the Monastic Gardens at St Patrick's Cathedral. It will take you through a locked gate and the orchard where we celebrate the seasons of apple growing in local stories, music, and ritual.

This Harvest time celebrates the nurturing land, bountiful fruit gathered and feast time.
