Music tours in Ireland

A charming country with a long musical heritage. Jump into Ireland and live ‘in the now’.

Dublin, a lively capital city that’s as intimate as a village and as friendly as your local Irish pub. Dublin is all about the emotion behind the music and the homely feel of this urban hub. And, of course, the people! Dublin has been named Europe's friendliest city twice by TripAdvisor for good reason.

Further south Cork is charming and lively with its well-known markets and busy quay. 

In between is stunning wild coastlines, pretty villages filled with living history, rolling countryside and ‘craic’ and music. Ireland is the perfect close to home destination for your concert tour and is sure to give you a wide-smiled and genuine welcome. 


Combine your performances in city and village churches, emerald green gardens and parks with visits to fascinating attractions showcasing the country’s history and tradition. 

 

Flights are generally reasonable or the ferry runs regularly from Liverpool so you can leave after breakfast and enjoy the copious Irish fayre for dinner - not forgetting your pint of Guinness!
