Can you hear that? It sounds like an entire island listening to quality music and rocking out at buzzing gigs. It sounds like Ireland.
Like music? Ireland has you covered. In Dublin, the big hitters will be found at
the O2, while there’s any number of intimate gigs happening weekly at spots like Whelan’s, Vicar Street, The Village and the Button Factory. To catch a traditional music session, check out the Dublin Sessions website for full listings. Belfast has long been known as a music maker with Van Morrison calling the city home and acts like Snow Patrol making their big stage debuts here. For a keyhole view into the city’s music soul, hop on
the Belfast Music Tour . The John Hewitt and The Duke of York are just two top live venue picks with The Belfast Empire Music Hall and the tempting triumvirate of The Limelight, Katy Daly’s and Spring and Airbrake home to some of the city’s biggest and brightest party nights. Traditional music has made counties Kerry, Clare, Limerick and Cork its home, but look hard enough and you’ll find a session anywhere on the island.
Bottom line: when you’re visiting Ireland, you can leave the MP3 player at home.
