Hermitage Green announce major Limerick show for this summer

The band’s first Irish show in 2019 will take place at their favourite venue in the country by far.

Hermitage Green have announced that they will be returning to King John’s Castle in Limerick this summer for their first Irish show of the year.


On 27 July, the band will take to the stage at the same venue where they paid tribute to the late Dolores O’Riordan last year, a tribute that touched a chord with local audiences and garnered acclaim worldwide.

The band have been busy of late, having completed a sold-out tour of Doha, Qatar, Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Sydney, Perth, Melbourne in Australia, which followed an inaugural nine-show theatre tour across Canada, which also sold out.


The gig at King John’s Castle, presented by Dolan’s, will be the band’s first show in Ireland in 2019 and if that wasn’t enough cause for excitement amongst Hermitage Green fans, they have also announced that they will be releasing their first single since their recent EP, Gold & Rust, next month.

The new single will be available across all streaming partners on Good Friday, 19 April.

Tickets to the gig in July will go on sale this Friday, 29 March. The event is expected to be a sell-out performance so early booking is recommended.

Commenting on their return to King John’s Castle this summer, Barry Murphy of Hermitage Green said: “We are very excited to return to King John’s Castle to play in what is by far our favourite venue in the country.


“Last year’s gig was so special to us and something we will never forget and we look forward to bringing a whole new show back to Limerick City this summer.”

Niall O’Callaghan, Managing Director at Shannon Heritage, added: “Shannon Heritage have focused significantly over recent years to develop both the King John’s Castle visitor experience and to position the historic castle as a destination venue for a wide range of cultural events. We have seen a tremendous reaction to the Live at King John’s Castle concert offering and audience feedback has been consistently positive.

“To be in a position to welcome back Hermitage Green - a group of local lads who have made such an impact on the Irish music scene – is one we take great pride in,” O’Callaghan added.


“We look forward to welcoming the guys back to King John’s Castle in July and can guarantee audiences a night they will never forget.”
