The Ennis Trad Festival is a festival for those who love to hear (or play) Irish traditional music of the highest quality in its most natural setting. Now in its sixteenth year, the Festival brings together the very best of Irish traditional musicians in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Over 20 venues host selected exponents of the music, carefully mixed and matched to ensure a choice of many great sessions. In addition, spotlight concerts every night (Thursday to Monday) feature internationally renowned bands. There are many other events too, including CD launches, recitals, instrument and singing masterclasses and céilís.
