Answers to some common questions

The Tour

We are offering an Irish Music Session experience. Our tours will travel from either Dublin or Donegal, (depending on the package), to various destinations around the country. Each night we will stop in a different location and have a session in one of the local music pubs. While travelling between towns, we will stop at some of the well known Tourist Attractions and Heritage sites. These tours are unique as we have our own group of musicians travelling along with us so expect a few sing-songs along the way!

The tours will only travel between towns already mentioned; however, subject to availability, daily activities may change to suit particular groups needs.
