Passion Play at Ballintubber Abbey

April 11 @ 12:00 am - April 13 @ 12:00 am


The 32nd Passion Play at Ballintubber Abbey will take place on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th & Wednesday 13th April 2022 at 9pm nightly. Booking not required and no admission fee applies, however a donation towards the cost of lighting and audio is very welcome!  The Passion Play or “The Triumph of Easter” as it is called, is ‘staged’ each Holy Week on the grounds of Ballintubber Abbey. The ‘stage’ is the natural setting of the grounds, and when they were being landscaped, they were designed with this in mind. It takes place outdoors and although there is a stand with seating, audience are advised to dress warm or bring a blanket! The people of Ballintubber, men, women and children, ninety two in all, have portrayed this drama since 1982. The lights and sound are of the highest quality, guaranteeing a great experience for everyone.  It attracts a large audience each year – from all over Ireland. The number of people who come repeatedly each year, show the powerful impact it has on their lives. We look forward to welcoming you!
