Subject: Music and song in Dublin
From: GUEST
Date: 12 Jun 16 - 05:09 AM

We (my folk-tolerant husband and I) are planning a short break in Dublin from 21- 25 June and are hoping to find some traditional music. I know there's a lot of it about, but I'd like to find some that isn't just for or by visiting tourists. I won't have my instrument with me, so Ireland will be spared my English melodeon playing - we'll be happy just to listen. I'm also a singer and interested in finding some traditional singing, although I probably wouldn't participate unless I was very sure it was welcome and appropriate. Any tips about where we should go?

Paging Jim Carroll!

That was me, temporarily cookieless. Just wanted to make it clear that it was not an impostor!

"Tolerant" tends to be an off-put, but there's always excellent music at the Cobblestones in Smithfield every night and you'll hear the best of singing at the Goilín Club at The Teaches Club in Parnell Square on Friday nights (has a website) - I think the 24th is the last night of the season).
Good tolerating

Oh, I've got him well trained to quite a high tolerance level! I'm sure we'll find some common ground. Many thanks, Jim.

You're welcome - enjoy a beautiful, friendly city.
We were planning to visit next week to see a film that will never reach us out here in the Wild West but would have had to mortgage our house to pay some of the accommodation prices.
If you're anywhere near O'Connell Street, there's a promising-sounding exhibition on 1916 at The Rotunda (top end) and an exhibition of Leonardo drawings at the National Gallery if you're into that sort of thing.
The food at the Cedar Tree Lebanese Restaurant on St Andrew Street is out of this world and similarly, The Brother Hubbard on Capel Street was nearly as good on the one visit we made.
Enjoy

Check out www.goilin.com for the singing. The guest on the 24th is Róisín Ní Ghallóglaigh who sings in both Irish and English. You'll be made most welcome and encouraged to sing too. The final night before the summer break is Friday July 1st.

Our hotel staff pointed us towards O'Neills and Madigans, but while these were fun, we hardly heard an Irish accent there. Better to take the tram three stops out of town to Smithfield, and head for the Cobblestones - it's the real thing, but very crowded. I gather the sessions at the Brazen Head are worthwhile, too.

I've not been there but on Thursday is it worth a trip out to the Abbey Tavern at Howth?

Don't know the dates, but I think that's wher the Howth Singing Circle meets - if so, well worth a trip

Just some feedback on our trip:
We did go twice to the Cobblestone, where we enjoyed the music, and were made very welcome. I was invited to sing (several times!) and got several compliments, including the lovely Irish "Fair play to ye!" from some of the locals. We didn't get to An Goilin, mainly because it doesn't start until 9.30, and is quite a way from our bus route, so it would really have been just too late a night for us We also checked out (briefly) O'Donohue's, O'Shea's Merchant and the Brazen Head, but found nothing much happening musically.
We found Dublin a very welcoming (although expensive) place with lively,friendly people, and really enjoyed our trip.

Alas, my visit to the Abbey was at a bleak lunchtime when nothing was going on. Nice pub!

The Cobblestone was a welcoming place, especially after the early paid "session" left after the first hour. There's also the nearby Hughes' bar, which, when we went, was enjoying a lovely session consisting of nothing but melody instruments. That night, Gay McKeon was on the pipes!

You might need to select "Ireland" ... or search "Dublin".

For visitors#Just been told about Songmap - an online guide to sessions in Ireland
Haven't had time to try it yet (too busy listening to good music and song at the Willie Clancy Summer School in Clare)
Hope it is of some use

I sure had a good time singing in Dublin. I especially liked the singaround in Bray. Hope I can do it again.
