Situated in two of the most historic homes in Balbriggan, Bedford House and Bedford Hall date back to 1750 and 1830. The Georgian and Victorian homes are treasures from Balbriggan’s past when the town was known all over the world by the quality of its hosiery with the Empress of Austria, the Czarina and Queen Victoria among their customers.

Bedford is located at the heart of the Irish Institute of Music and Song campus where guests can expect to interact with artists, writers, composers and occasionally hear impromptu concerts from Broadway stars staying at the Institute as part of the Artist in Residence Programme. Choirs, concert bands and orchestras can regularly be heard around the campus using the purpose built spaces for rehearsals.
