The Belfast Traditional Music Trail is a unique way to experience Irish music. With two professional musicians as your guides, walk through cobbled alleyways, past famous landmarks and on to private bars in some of the city’s oldest buildings.
At each of the three stops you will be treated to a performance of traditional tunes, songs and stories, all of which make up your own personal ‘session’. Enjoy a local beer, cider, whiskey or Guinness while learning about the instruments, language, customs and history that make up Ireland’s vibrant musical tradition. Join us on this interactive experience and discover why Belfast is considered one of Ireland’s best cities for Traditional Irish Music. Our Trail lasts around 2 ½ hours and will take place in Belfast’s vibrant and centrally located Cathedral Quarter. Starting off at 4pm by the cosy fireside of The Dirty Onion bar, you will meet the musicians and be guided to a private room in the iconic Duke Of York public house. Here you can relax with a drink surrounded by a wealth of Belfast artefacts, and enjoy music, stories and songs from the Irish tradition. The Trail then moves on to one of Belfast’s oldest buildings, McHugh’s, where there will be more ceol agus craic (music and fun!) in store
