Traveling to Ireland

Hi - Any recommendations for live music in Ireland? I'll be passing through in May and need some ideas for where to go.

Thanks

A month later and a few hundred miles away is Glastonbury if you can manage that. I've been 3 times, always a good time!

Every town and city in Ireland has live traditional music nights every week, and they're always decent enough.

Maybe Amsterdam is a safer bet.

also, if you smoke, make sure you get the cigarettes out of the carton by smacking it. All the Irish people do that, and it'll make you look less like a tourist.

Great time to go as the weather is good and summer crowds are not in yet. I spent 2 weeks in Ireland last year and loved it. There are 10 pubs in every town and all have live music of sorts so when you get in, ask around of the locals to find a place that suits you.

Remember that even though it is May, Ireland is the same latitude as southern Alaska so it is colder than you might think. Maybe 10F colder than SFO. I have travelled quite a bit and Ireland is probably one of the friendliest places on earth.

Dont mention the Troubles.

Also, Dublin is like mini London with no english people, music scenes good and a pub on every corner (more or less)

Try other larger towns and cities too. Cork's a fine place and so is the Kilkenny area. Actually, Kilkenny also had a music festival going on in May.

I live just outside Galway.
Don't worry about finding trad music, it.......is...........everywhere!
If you're in Galway check out Monroes, An Pucan and Tig Coili. They're all pretty central and Tig Coili has trad sessions constantly.
Aye Aye, enjoy your trip, also be warned that Ireland is absolutely the worst place ever.

But I hope you like it :L

Thanks to the kind replies. I've been to Ireland but did not have time to get out of Dublin.

Kilkenny sounds like a good idea..

Thanks
