We caught some wonderful evenings of West Kerry and the Blasket Islands traditional music performed. Melts my heart to hear this passed down to future generations keeping the culture alive and strong! Do not miss this excellent offering while visiting Dingle!

We visited Dingle for the first time this week and were so lucky that our visit coincided with a folk concert at St James Church. I had wanted to visit the church having watched a programme about Amy Winehouse once giving a concert there. We were unaware that folk concerts take place regularly between May - September and happened to arrive on the night of the very first concert of the 2023 season. Tickets are sold at various venues around the town. We purchased ours at Heaneys pub on the Main Street. It’s a small venue so best to buy your ticket in advance although if there is room you can pay at the door.
The concerts are organised and hosted by a local legend Eoin Duignan who is a multi - instrumentalist with in depth knowledge of Irish folk music and the stories that surround it. Alongside Eoin were other local musicians who delighted us with their talent on the guitar, fiddle , harp, piano and various flutes and pipes. It was a sheer delight and if you get the opportunity to go along make sure you don’t miss out! An evening we shall never forget.

While in Dingle, I strongly urge you to attend one of Eoin Duignan's Seasonal Concert Series at St. James Church. He has the most amazing musicians join him and you will get to hear traditional Irish music in a beautiful setting. I cannot say enough about this concert series. It is inspiring and wonderful.

The Irish music concert at St. James Churc was a highlight of our trip and just down the street. Tickets are sold throughout the town and in the pub next door.

A lively concert that closed with traditional dance. Lovely! The line was long to enter and I worried we'd not get in but there was lots of room and the line moved quickly.

Visited the church for Other Voices wow such a fantastic intimate venue. Would highly recommend if you are in Dingle and if you can get a pass to go. Even if there are no passes some of the pubs stream the gigs. Hope this helps.

We managed tickets to this venue and are so happy we did. In an "OLD" Church they perform "Trad Music" which would equate to Apalachian or Mountain Music in Kentucky. The night we attended it was a group of 4 musicians and singers providing a history lesson through music. They were great in explaining what the background of the various pieces were and where they came from. It is a must do event if ever in Dingle!

You'll need to duck into Paul Geaney's Bar & Restaurant next door to buy tickets. Simply ask any of the staff if they have tickets for the show. The day we attended, they didn't have tickets on hand until the day of the concert (Friday,) but we made it a point to keep checking in until they did.

The night of our show, a Rick Steves tour group was there with us, so it was a packed house. The show had a 10 min intermission in the middle, where a different group of artists performed during the second half.

All in all, it was a treat!
