Great event, don't miss it, good irish music and traditional irish dancing with explanations around cultural and personal backgrounds, and a interesting and humorous tour through the church in the concert break. We loved it, thanks for the experience.

This was a great way to learn more about the rich musical traditions of Ireland. The musicians were excellent and gifted, and it was a small group so you are sitting up close the musicians and even able to ask questions. The night we were...More

We saw the poster for this at the tourist info center. This was an amazing concert and one of the highlights of our trip. If you can arrange to go, you should. 15 euro for a 90 minute concert. Incredibly talented musicians and a dancer.

We just saw the sign on the church and dropped in for the concert. What a lucky choice. It was a really nice concert, with flute, dance, song and harmonica. Also a tour in the church. A really lovely evening.
