Tradfest is one of those annual events that you have saved in your calendar, afraid of ever double booking and being denied the opportunity to revel in the marvels of some rollicking trad and folk.

The festival occurs at the beating heart of Dublin’s arts and culture district, Temple Bar. It’s a place where buskers traditionally test out their newest songs and galleries open late for exhibition openings.

In January, Meeting House Square is set alight with the luminescent joy that Irish traditional music brings to proceedings.

There will be international acts performing shoulder to shoulder with the most awe-inspiring session musicians you’ve ever heard. You’ll be moved by lilting celtic airs or perhaps you’ll let your feet do the talking with a jig or a reel. Either way, Temple Bar Tradfest 2018 is a weekend to dive into, heart and soul. Experience the true essence of Irish life, with good times soundtracked by great music.
