Where are the best music scenes in Ireland?

My husband and I are doing a drive around the Emerald Isle in early March, and would love to experience the Music of Ireland. Whether it be shows, or just hearing live music in pubs, bars, or the streets, that's what we would love to do. We are looking for any suggestions on where best to experience Ireland's music scene, and also how? THANKS!

    Hi Julie,

    My husband and I traveled to Ireland in 2010. We signed up with CIE Tours International and they set us up with a trip around Ireland that included many pub stops with music. Temple Bar is also a fantastic place to visit. But to be honest, wherever we were for the night we would just walk around the town and stop in a few pubs to have a couple of pints. Or, if we weren't sure we'd ask the locals what was going on. We found most music happened on the weekends. You can also check out: http://musicscene.ie/ and it tells you of all the bands/concerts that will be coming up.


    Enjoy the trip!

    For that truly traditional sound, you'll want to plan your night out at almost any pub on the west coast. Just look for trad sessions in the What's On calendars for wherever you're going, but really you can pop in anywhere and won't be disappointed. If you're visiting the Cliffs of Moher, I can't recommend Daly's House and Gus O'Connor's Pub enough... better go early for a good table!

      Thanks Ginger! We will definitely check out Daly's House and Gus O'Conner's when we get to the west coast. And I checked out What's On thanks to your recommendation and found a music festival going on while we are there - so excited, thanks! · (1 likelikes)

    The best place to experience Irish Music is in the pubs. County Clare is probably the best county in Ireland for music. Traditional music is vibrant in most of the towns around. Ennis is the main city but smaller towns like Miltown Malbay have a great musical tradition.

    Sligo has hosted the main Irish music festival (see http://www.fleadhcheoil.ie) last year and again this year and is another great place to experience Irish music.
