This area continues to expand, you’ll find exciting things to see, hear, and do on our three most intimate stages (Galway , Blarney, & Sligo Stages) filled with musicians, writers, storytellers, historians, and dancers. Participate in our Hooley and learn Ceili dance, play to the beat of the Bodhran (an Irish drum), uncover your hidden Irish heritage, and learn to speak Gaelic like a local from Ireland.
See exhibits and hear presentations: travel Ireland, learn about Irish art and symbols, listen to stories, poetry, readings, music, and dance. The Parade of Dance Champions is held here on Saturday night along with the popular Lumbertown Beard Baron Bout. New this year is Open Mic Night both Friday and Saturday on the Sligo stage and the Bawdy Songs on Saturday night on the Galway stage.
