Subject: Noreen's Irish Adventure- ideas?
From: Noreen
Date: 27 Oct 13 - 05:47 PM

Hi all!
I'll be over in Ireland for the Ennis Traditional Festival 9/10 Nov, and am looking for some 'proper' singing and playing either side of the weekend. This is the first time I've been over for years, and am looking forward to take in some of the wonderful gatherings I've heard about.

I'd planned to go to the Clé club in Dublin on Weds 6th Nov (day of arrival) but have just found out that the Clé club has changed to monthly meetings and there will be nothing on that night.

I'd also planned to take in the Goilín Club on the Friday 15th November, but I find that'll be off because all the regulars will be over at Spanish Point for another singing weekend.

I'm hoping the Bray Singers' Circle will still be on, on Saturday 16th, just before we go home- or will they be at Spanish Point too? Should we stay over in Clare too?!

So, I'm looking for ideas of where to go/ what's on between 11th and 16th, to plan the rest of the holiday around.

Thank you for any ideas :)

I know that Martin but to be still launching after a year is surely stretching it a bit, isn't it?

On the other hand, maybe it's just a sign there are not as many new CDs being made as there were a few years ago.

Peter you are looking at last year's programme I think - see the date at the top, they leave it up as a guide to the sort of thing that's on until the new one is available. It's always last minute, particularly with the session trail, you often don't get that until you've arrived, can't be helped, I'm just glad someone does this at all. Headline artists are up on their facebook page.

You'll hear some fine singing at The Clare Traditional singing weekend at Spanish Point and I would concur (on the basis of a recent visit) that Kinvarra is well worth a visit.
Good music tends to be wall-to-wall in Miltown Malbay - Spanish Point is next-door.
Haven't visited the Ennis Trad Festival for some years but, while the music can be excellent, singing has never been a major feature of the proceedings.
Don't know how long you intend to stop, but you need more than a few days to sample the delights of West Clare.
"launching several CDs that have been out for over a year. Bit of a sham isn't it?"
Someone once commented that Ireland has more 'launches' than Camell Lairds shipbuilders.
"your post was a negative criticism "
Take it easy Cap'n - Peter is a fine musician whose contribution to Irish music is to be applauded, as is his contribution to this forum, with his carefully considered and knowledgeable postings.

Apart from the hotel accommodation costs, there is a small charge for the weekend activities and an optional seminar dinner on the Saturday, as far as I recall. I'll check details if nobody posts them here soon ('catter Liberty Boy has family connections with the organisers!).

B&B's less common than they used to be and November is low season - but you should still be fine.

Try the Bellbridge Hotel web-site direct - nuff sed!!
Any problems with space, The Armada Hotel is within staggering distance of the proceedings
The theme of the week-end is Emigration (I think) - am I the only one having difficulty finding information on what exactly is happening this year - haven't come across a poster or a programme so far?
"can anyone tell me what other charges there are for the weekend?"
The singing sessions are free, can't remember if there is acharge for the talks, if any - apart from that, there is a charge for the Saturday night concert

Hi Noreen, you could do worse than try and see what is on in Clifden on the Connemara, a very beautiful part of the world if all else fails.

Lowrys in Clifden normally has music on a Thursday night with some very good musicians and a great mixture of songs and tunes. (tel:00 353 95 21347)The numerous other bars often have sessions going and are open and generous with visiting singers/musicians.

Richie Newman will probably he playing in Lowrys(he has a bar in Cleggan). He is also a great guy and very talented on mandolin, guitar and banjo, give him my regards if you see him please.

Cheers

Re accommodation - further
Miltown Malbay has several recommended B&Bs - can get details for you if you wish.
The nearest one to the Ballbridge - literally 2 minutes walk, is run by the daughter of the original owner, Deidre O'Malley and faces out into Mal Bay (with spectacular views of New York if your eyesight is good enough!!)
Probably wise to confirm accommodation ASAP from experience of friends in past years.

I recently stayed at - and can recommend - Mary Hughes' B&B "An Gleann", Ennis Road, Miltown Malbay, located 1 km from Miltown Malbay on the main road to Ennis.

Beware when buying CDs at Custy's in Ennis. They take the discs out, presumably to discourage theft. I bought a Paddy Keenan CD, and when I opened it - you guessed it: no disc. I was already too far down the road to turn back.

Have a great trip!

OK, plans going well! Thanks for all the helpful suggestions.

Have now booked into the Bellbridge in Spanish Point for the final weekend (sorry George- I'll have to come to your sing in Bray another time).

So- will have Monday to Thursday, (11th-14th) to get from Ennis to Spanish Point (!), probably heading down to Dingle, and of course Milltown for a night.

More immediately, we arrive lunchtime Weds and were going to stay the night in Dublin but don't need to now as the Clé club is off. What would be a good place to stop, heading westwards?

One option would be to get across to Galway for Wednesday night (about 2.5 hours drive on the motorway) then wander down to Ennis along the coast on Thursday. As it happens, there's no regular music in my home village of Kinvara (12 miles outside Galway) on Wednesday at the moment - but Galway itself has lots of options.

I'm away in Scotland over those few days but will be back for Spanish Point!

Galway is always nice and lively and you'll have musical options to during the night, the Sweeney's Men reunion on the 15th should offer a bit of nostalgia for example. And it would probably be more efficient as a way of traveling, rather than go to Miltown and pop down and back to see Dingle (if you do decide to go Miltown-Dingle-Miltown, take the Killimer ferry across the Shannon instead of the long way round through Limerick).

Hi Noreen, Don't know if you been to Dingle before but try and get to O'Flahertys' Bar. Fergus the landlord is a great host and musician and his sister Mazz, apart from being a cracking singer runs the music shop up near Dick Macks' bar. Fergus plays guitar, accordion and banjo at break neck speed.

"What would be a good place to stop, heading westwards?"
The journey is fairly simple nowadays, what with the motorways and bypasses (haven't done it for a long time by road, but I understand less than 4 hours coast to coast) but should you decide it necessary to stop, it's often advantageous to book in advance as many hotels are offering great bargains at half-nothing due to the demise of the Celtic Tiger - (we regularly use booking,com).
The Midlands can be a bit 'curate's eggish' so any worthwhile stops usually involve a diversion off the main road.
If you decide on the straightest route - a bit far south, but if you haven't been, Cashel, in Tipperary is spectacular, and the Glen of Aherlow (south of Tipperary Town) is beautiful, weather permitting.
These may be a bit far off your route, but Ireland isn't a large country.
If the weather is good, be sure to visit the Burren
By the way, the journey from Ennis to Spanish Point is around half an hour and, again if the weather is good, come in by the Connolly Road and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the Atlantic
About four miles outside Miltown is Diarmuid and Grainne, a megalighic tomb said to have been erected by the eponymous heroes fleeing from Finn McCumhal's jealousy - local legend has it that any woman having difficulties procreating should sleep under it overnight - just a thought!!
Whatever way you choose - enjoy; may see you in Spanish Point.

As Peter said, the Burren centre at Mullaghmore never was finished though the detritus took years to remove - great victory for peoples' power despite the fact that the proposals to build another on the Burren still hover threateningly.
Galway is a pleasant city (as cities go) and you're sure to find a session at The Crane Pub most nights; (out of the city centre heading north, over the Bridge (Claddagh on your left) and somewhere to the right - (we always use the Kashmir Indian restaurant as a guide - and for a meal).
There is a session on Friday (I think) nights somewhere on Shop Street where you might be lucky enough to hear Tommy McCarthy (of the London McCarthys) play - lovely fiddler.

Tom Munnelly once commented when he moved here from Dublin that it was the first time he'd experienced 60 mph fog (a combination of high winds and sea mist).
