“Fun Evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

Had a great time learning a bit about Ireland's traditional music history and listening to the fabulous performance of the two artists who took our group from one pub to another, providing us with a delightful evening. Would definitely recommend The Kilkenny Traditional Music Trail for anyone looking for an excellent way to spend an evening in Killkenny!

“A great night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

The trad music tour introduces you to a couple of Kilkenny's finest pubs. The guides are very knowledgeable and funny and their music could be stolen from the fairies themselves! Funny stories and audience particpation helps to loosen everyone up after a few drinks. We bought their CD and have enjoyed it on the drive home.

“Wonderful musicians”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2011

Joe and Trish were amazing. They entertained me and my family with much more than just music. Starting with the friendly banter between the musicians they immediately welcome you into an intimate atmosphere where you feel comfortable interacting with them right from the start. We learned so much about music history and style from both musicians. They had the whole group up dancing together, telling stories, singing together and laughing. This is an excellent tour, do not miss it if you are in Kilkenny!

“A great evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2011

I found the Kilkenny Traditional Music Trail on TA and based on the reviews decided to give it a try. Trisha, Eric and Ryan did not disappoint! We only went to two pubs because the third was too crowded that night and we ended up being a large group, but that was fine, they made up for it with more music. Trisha is so talented and obviously has a passion for what she does. I highly recommend Kilkenny Traditional Music Trail for anyone who wants to learn more about trad music and wants to experience a great evening of good craic.

“A traditional Irish music experience not to be missed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2011

We altered pur travel plans to join this tour and were so glad we did. Jo and Trish played a variety of wonderful music from toe tapping reels and jigs to mournful ballads all the while regaling us with humourous, interesting stories and info about Trad Irish. Don't miss this fabulous experience, in fact we would recommend you alter your plans so you can.
