Trad Fest 2021 - TradFest @ Home 

There are already a few very exciting events lined up for this year, and we'd like to kick off with Trad Fest! 

Tradfest takes place in Dublin Castle and Temple Bar, among other iconic locations in the Fair City at the end of January, and it's a wonderful festival filled with traditional Irish music. This year, everything is a little bit different, and you can find events with a small audience of up to 50 people, as well as live virtual sessions. 

For more information, the programme and tickets, take a look at the official TradFest website
