A completely unique experience, the Tinteán Ceoil is a traditional Irish fireside music session. Described by visitors as “the best thing I did in Ireland”, it is unlike any experience anywhere else. Local musicians lead the evening, incorporating any and all who want to contribute through music, dance, singing, recitation, and whatever else strikes them. If you’re not a performer, you can simply be part of the inter-generational fellowship. Local children are a regular where they practice their latest tin whistle or accordion piece or work on some of their Irish dance steps.
