The music and folklore of Ireland has spread its reach far and wide from our humble isle and you’ll be getting right back to the roots, discovering what makes these traditions so popular.

You’ll be visiting the regions in Ireland where these characteristics still resound with the strongest beat. Taking you from Dublin to Galway and exploring the south coast, you’ll meet locals, hear their stories by candlelight and learn how a live session can make your pint taste all the sweeter.
