From the storied halls of Dublin Castle to the splendour of the soaring gothic nave of St Patrick’s Cathedral, the TradFest live experience is made magical by the experience of just inhabiting these special spaces. If you’re visiting Ireland, or have never really explored the architectural heritage of Dublin City, this is a wonderful way to immerse yourself musical melody and to feel the drumbeat of history.
This year we return to the wonderfully atmospheric Pepper Canister Church, Collins Barracks, a National Museum of Ireland site and a repository of collections dating back more than nine millennia and many other staple venues. We make our debut at the Abbey Theatre, the National Theatre of Ireland and the GPO, famously used as a headquarters by the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising.
Unforgettable is built into every performance.
