Friars Walk, Ennis, Clare,
Ennis, famous for traditional Irish music, is home to Glór Irish Music Centre which celebrates the Banner County's rich musical heritage.
Built in recognition of the area's musical heritage and contribution to Irish traditional music, Glór gives you the opportunity to experience the ultimate traditional music 'session'.
Located in Ennis, the centre provides information about instruments, styles, dance, music and song through live musical demonstrations. Using fantastic musicians and friendly hosts, Glór demonstrates (in a predominantly non-verbal style) the richness and diversity of Irish music.
Enjoy lunch at Glór Café, offering the best in contemporary cuisine, while listening to live music. The café serves an evening meal prior to performances (by advance request only). The wonderful 'They Love Music Mightily' interactive exhibition features contemporary recordings from some of Ireland's greatest ambassadors of Irish traditional music.
The live music and exhibition are complimented perfectly by film, 'Clare for the Music!' exploring the origins of traditional music in Clare.
