Due to Covid 19/ Coronavirus outbreak. Sorry for any inconvenience.
.

Traidphicnic, back for its sixth year, is a wonderful festival, celebrating the vibrant local culture and traditions in the Gaeltacht village of An Spidéal.

 

A fantastic packed programme, run bi-lingually, brings you top class traditional music gigs, along with family events during the day. For the gigs and events you are free to donate what you want, with the exception of the music workshops which will take place on the Saturday morning.

 

For the youngsters, the young at heart, and the non Trad enthusiasts, there will be a drumming workshop and arts and crafts, wool spinning, a chance to participate in an art installation as well as the chance to try out sean-nós dancing. For the more seasoned festival goer, along with the finest musical talents to listen to there will also be information sessions on how to make a violin. Step into the giant Camera Obscura, stack some turf and more. For those looking for a little respite from the buzz of the festival, there will be a walk along the stunning coastline and countryside.

 

Music sessions will take place in local pubs each night and visitors can experience first-hand the warmth of the local welcome and, of course, the most famous aspect of the Irish culture ‘The Craic’! Come along to the festival, bring your own picnic, suncream, sunglasses, wellies, raingear…. and experience the culture of both the Gaeltacht and Ireland.

 

Location:

An Spidéal, Galway, Ireland
