Just got back from Ireland today - and loved it! We were in Clifden, Connemara, then Dingle Co. Kerry. I am Very jealous of all you Irish people and your beautiful country and Fantastic sessions that are on ALL THE TIME! It's great - every evening is like a festival. We stayed in Dingle where every other building is a pub - so there are guaranteed at least three good sessions a night!
I will definately be returning to lovely Ireland.

Anyone know about the scene in Clare?

Didn't intend to be enigmatic. Not really up to date on things but here's some general info.

Cork City, venues for trad music. None of the pubs have music every night, most only a couple of times a week. It's hard to find anything on at weekends.

Corner House, Coburg Street. http://www.irishmusicbars.com/cork/cornerhouse.asp
Sin É, Coburg Street
Phoenix Bar, Union Quay
Lobby Bar, Union Quay
Spailpín Fánach, South Main Street.

Jimmy Crowley & friends in Phoenix every Tuesday, songs and tunes.

Singers' Club in Spailpín Fánach every Sunday night except during summer. Everbody invited to contribute.

Storytelling & songs last Tuesday of every month in Spailpín.

Lobby has regular concerts, Folk, Blues, Jazz and alternative stuff. http://www.lobby.ie/

I don't like the so called "ballad groups", that is a seperate scene but there are places where they can be found. I haven't any info.

Outside Cork City.

Glanmire. A bar that used to be called the Heron's Perch, think it's O'Connor's now. Every Tuesday night Tomás Ó Canainn and friends. A unique venue - tunes, songs and maybe a bit of dancing. You never know who'll turn up (maybe Bonnie?). The best 'seisiún' in the country.

Kinsale. Tourist town - lots of tourist music i.e. 'ballad groups' playing the same f---ing songs, night after night, week after week, month after ----- etc. "C'mon put yer hands together now - Oiv been a woild rover fer ---" Yah! get me outa here...
However, Con Fada & friends every Wed. night in the Spaniard does not provide that fare. Also trad sessions in the Bulmans, Tues. and Thurs.

That's all very sketchy (& possibly prejudiced) and I'm sure there's a lot more on but usually if you find one good spot and get talking to people they can guide you to other worthwhile places.

Slán anois.

I'm from Ireland's largest county, the Texas of Ireland, the Rebel County - Co. Cork. Home of Ireland's best stout; Murphys or Beamish, take your pick.

Some great trad music to be found if you know where to look, even in the middle of the tourist season when standards drop dramatically.

Bonnie, if you're still following this thread, where are you playing these days?

michealr,
The Jurys in Galway was a bit steep at 100 euros for the room, but actually was less expensive than many of the B&Bs which were charging 40 euros per person. While I shared the room, the family I was traveling with actually made out staying at the Inn. So I would imagine the hostel, which I recall was some miles away, would be cheaper. However the Inn is dead-bang in the middle of all the pubs and busking opportunities. I walked out of the Jurys with an autoharp and with a friend who plays the hammered dulcimer, went one block up the street in a closed mall area, and we made 100 euros in two hours of playing; phenominal! (We had known that if they have to stop and ask what the instrument is that you are playing, the bigger the tip).

And I understand that if you book by WWW the price is cheaper (I believe the site was jurysdoyle.? but I am not sure. (Also try hostels.com to compare). Good Luck!

I just got back from the Ol' Sod and am sorry that this thread appeared while I was gone. I did put out a thread I was coming, but the MudCatters I knew couldn't make the schedule.

To begin with, I did not wreck even once during this trip, so the rental car people are still in business over there, but I will say the Opel Mireva was an excellent rental vehicle; sort of a small van with an automatic transmission (a must for Americans and other right handers). The roads in Clare and throughout Ireland are much better than a couple of years ago, with many of them widened by a crucial foot or so, and many with traffic markings painted on the road surfaces.

We drove to Doolin to play at O'Conners, then to Cork for the Dulcimer Fest and a concert at Firkin Crane. I'm sorry I didn't know about the MCs at Cork or I would have looked them up.

Then we went back up to Galway for a couple of days in the pubs (stayed at the Jurys Inn). From there we went to Omagh to play Old Time in the American Independence Day festival at the Ulster Folk Park. I was struck by the large crowds for all four days of the festival. We ran into some great musicians from England (a Patsy Cline cover band, who were great fun) and a vaudeville act from Branson, Mo. The Park provided room and board on the Park grounds and every evening we had some great jams. There were also a number of Native Americans there for an exhibit of "Indian" life and a large group of Civil War re-enactors from GB, Ireland and Wales who camped out for the duration of the festival. What a hoot. Evenings were spent discharging muskets, war-hoop and rebel yell competitions, I Fall To Pieces, Lorena, and flat footing to Angeline The Baker.

I'm sorry I missed you folks, but we're coming back next year, so I will save this thread in order to get the word out quicker next time.

Hiya, I'm living and working in the south Dublin area..coming here to live, from Michigan. Learned most of my music in Chicago after being introduced to it by a whistle player from Carlow who was attending Notre Dame. Love Liz Carroll, love Martin Hayes...two entirely different fiddle styles but also two extremely dynamic and exciting players. Think that Delores Keane is probably the first and foremost singer I listened to and that she sounds like she has a golden sugar pear in her mouth when she sings.
