Members of the media are invited to direct enquiries to the relevant contact below. A range of useful information tools about the Blackwater Valley Opera festival are available on our website for journalists and broadcasters.

We welcome enquiries from journalists about Ireland’s Summer Opera Festival, and are happy to provide images to accompany any press coverage. We can also help arrange media visits, propose itineraries for press trips, provide editorial content, and assistance with accommodation and transport for journalists.

Our marketing team regularly arranges press trips for groups and individuals in conjunction with local stakeholder businesses and visitor attractions. 

To request press releases and images, make an enquiry about a press trip (UK, international and Ireland), discuss partnerships/sponsorship opportunities, or to find out about advertising in our opera programme – please get  in touch, we would love to hear from you.
