Some of the biggest acts in Irish music.
Each year the Temple Bar TradFest has a jam packed programme of events that are fun for all the Family. The Family Hub is in the ARK where children can enjoy free open Trad Sessions in the ‘Cosy Corner’ and take part in free craft workshops. The ARK also plays host to Irish music and dance workshops and performances that are suitable for all the family. Families can enjoy some of the best known names in Irish music on our free outdoor stages.
As part of the TradFest IMRO will run a series of showcase concerts and workshops featuring some of the best emerging traditional acts in Ireland. Full details to follow.
During the Temple Bar TradFest pubs throughout the area will be full of Irish music, dance and craic. Enjoy hundreds of free performances in 17 venues. Try your hand a tune in our singers club, pick up an instrument in one of our open sessiuns, or soak up the atmosphere in the festival club.
The ever-popular singers club has a new venue for this year’s TradFest. The Merchant’s Arch will stage the event on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th of January and this year sees the return of the legendary Cork singer Sean O’Se who will host the show each evening.
