Doolin Music

Doolin, the Home of Irish Traditional Music

Clare is quite possibly the most musical county in Ireland and Doolin is the most musical village in Clare. There are more musicians to the square mile here than anywhere in the world.

Doolin, once a quiet fishing village tucked away on the north-west coast of Clare, has over the last number of decades at least become a veritable mecca for fans of traditional music from all over the world and has established for itself an international reputation unequalled anywhere on this island. It might be said that Doolin is to Irish traditional music what New Orleans is to traditional jazz.

You will find live music session'S in Doolin nearly every night of the year and from March to October there will be music sessions in all four pubs in Doolin.

There are four pubs to choose from, Mcdermott's, McCann's, Fitzpatricks and Gus O’Connor's. There is something special about the local Irish music which sets Doolin apart.
