Music and Dance is the Heartbeat of Irish Culture

From street ballad singers to rock'n'roll stars: for a tiny island, Ireland has produced more than its fair share of the world's finest musicians, dancers and artists. At the heart of this is a rich and varied local traditional music scene – a fountain of both inspiration and entertainment. Music and dance is written into the history and landscape of Ireland, with the ancient Celtic traditions still thriving within Ireland's towns, cities and local communities.

The enjoyment of music & dance lies within the heart of Irish culture. Jump Into Ireland.
