Guinness Cork Jazz Festival

27th – 30th October

Dust off those dancing shoes and loosen up those jazz hands because the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival is back!

Enjoy Europe’s biggest jazz party as the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival celebrates its 40th edition. Featuring over 1,000 musicians in hundreds of music sessions citywide, it is one of the jewels in the crown of Irish festivals.

We’re kicking off the Guinness Jazz Weekend at Costigan’s with a live music performance from the incredibly talented Cork band, Emerson, at 9.30pm Friday 27th October.

Emerson have played alongside a range of successful Irish bands including Delorentos, Kodaline, The Raglans and This Club and take their influence from iconic bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Verve, The Beatles, Oasis, The Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian.

We are delighted to announce that Emerson will play not one, not two, but THREE gigs at Costigan’s over the course of the weekend!

Day two of the Guinness Jazz Weekend brings with it another fantastic line-up of live music which gets underway at 5pm!


Following this, the incredible Horgan, Nooone & Night will take to the stage at 7.30pm and finally, closing off the night we have the electrifying Emerson taking over at 9.30pm.

Getting things started at 5pm we have Baron Mare Jazz Band who will bring the pub to life for a two hour set.
For the final day of the Guinness Jazz Festival we have yet another three live performances and we’re kicking things off a little earlier!


At 3pm we’ve got Horgan, Noone and Night belting out the big numbers.

And because we know they’ll leave you wanting more, Horgan, Noone and Night take to the floor for their second gig of the evening at 9.30pm.

Following this, Emerson return to the stage for their final Costigan’s gig of the weekend at 6.30pm.


So it’s simple really, Costigan’s is your one stop pub this Guinness Cork Jazz Weekend!
