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. Walk down the street and you must likely meet a local who has a family member performing in Riverdance.
Doolin, once a quiet fishing village tucked away on the north-west coast of Clare, has over the last number of decades 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.
