Ireland isn’t just a land of saints and scholars. Music is in our DNA, too.
From folk ballads to stadium bands like U2 and Snow Patrol, from Brian Boru’s harp in Trinity College to Belfast hosting the MTV Europe Music Awards, it’s always been our thing.
Did you know that Led Zeppelin first played Stairway to Heaven live at Ulster Hall? That Steve Earle’s ‘Galway Girl’ celebrates a blue-eyed beauty from the coastal city? That Dublin stole Rihanna’s heart? “I’ll love you forever,” the star tweeted on her #LOUDtour.
Ireland’s club scene is rocking, too. Think of Twisted Pepper and The Workman’s Club in Dublin, or 21 Social in Belfast. After seeing the sights, you can get your fix of everything from dazzling disco beats to pumping house music and good ol’ fashioned 80s cheese...
For all the festivals, clubs and rock gigs, of course, nothing raises the hairs on your neck quite like the intimacy of traditional Irish music being played in a pub.
Our tip? Find a space in the corner, get stuck into the conversation, and let the spirit of the place take over you. It’s not amplified. It’s rarely rehearsed. But it combines centuries of heritage with the spontaneity of a group that formed just 10 minutes ago.
Tune in. You’ll have an absolute blast.
