Stopped here a couple of nights while in Galway. In August there is a nightly performance ranging from very traditional to newer and eclectic. Enjoyed the musicians insights and sharing about their music and instruments. Fairly early in the evening so don't miss it!

This is a great experience for people who are interested not just in hearing music but also in the culture that created it. A wonderful setting in this Medieval church. During the intermission you get a short tour of the church and some wonderful stories...More

Fantastic musicians and dancing but also very educational. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions to the performers. Great show.
