Clare is a beautiful, very varied county – from rolling green hills in the east, to the limestone pavement of the Burren to the rugged coastline from Loop Head to the Cliffs of Moher to the Flaggy Shore. The Information Point for the Burren is in Corofin village with the Burren National Park trailhead a further 4 miles away. Activities are many and of all different types – outdoor, indoor, suitable for families, the active or not so active! Burren Fiddle Holidays appreciate that many people like to explore by themselves in their free time and ‘do their own thing’. However, if you are without transport or would prefer a guided tour, Burren Fiddle Holidays may be able to show you some of the local sights.
Burren Fiddle Holidays is located 9 miles from Ennis – the biggest town in Co. Clare – and its many traditional music sessions. You are a half-hour drive or less from the villages of Miltown Malbay, Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Ennistymon, Lahinch, Kilfenora, Ballyvaughan, Gort, Crusheen and Kinvara, all of which are great places for music and have their own unique character. You can find sessions nightly once you know where to look! Visiting sessions is a great opportunity to learn about the trad music scene, make friends and play a few tunes! Again, if you are without transport, we may be able to take you out to some great local sessions.
Visiting Co. Clare gives you a chance to to meet some of the best traditional Irish musicians on their home turf. Burren Fiddle Holidays can, on request, arrange small recitals or sessions of two to three musicians. If there is a someone in particular you would like to meet or a particular combination of instruments you would like to hear, put some details in your booking enquiry and we will see who is available.
