When Taoiseach Brian Cowen is looking for a bed for the night in the capital, he lodges at the Farmleigh estate in the Phoenix Park.

The rest of us get a chance to enjoy Lord Iveagh’s stately pile when the Farmleigh Affair returns for its third outing over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The free two-day event from the Improvised Music Company will feature Justin Adams (a regular collaborator with Robert Plant and Tinariwen) with Gambian ritti maestro Juldeh Camara, the Mornington Singers, Grada, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Grupo Fantasma, Lo Còr De La Plana and many more.

Tickets are available from today here and are limited to four per person (and that goes for the Taoiseach too).
