Bringing you the highest class of traditional music, arts, dance and culture in a bi-lingual way! Come along for tunes, turf stacking and a whole lot more. Bígí Linn.

The third Traidphicnic brings you the highest class of traditional music, arts, dance and culture in a bi-lingual way!

Come along to Spiddal, Connemara, Co. Galway, where two days of top class traditional music, song and dance await you. The gigs are open air, so come prepared for all weather. There are no entrance fees, but donations are encouraged.

Attend a master class on Saturday morning given by local heroes like Johhny Óg Connolly or Martin Hayes. If that is not for you, there will be plenty for all to enjoy from a walk with Rónán and his Hawk, and animal madness, to art installations, storytelling, a puppet show, or a bodhran class. Why not learn a few steps of a Sean Nós dance, explore the Ceardlann Spiddal Craft Village and Café, meet the crafters and artists on site, walk the beautiful shoreline, or even take a refreshing dip?

Less than a mile away, you can shop to your hearts content at Standúns and discover the village of An Spidéal, where a cosy corner with a great Pint awaits you along with the famous trad music and craic!
