Music & Cultural Tour of Ireland
22:00 - 01:00
Milwaukee Irish Fest and the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland are delighted to launch the first Milwaukee to Ireland Culture and Music Tour. This 10-day trip to Ireland will take place in January 2019, and will give Milwaukee Irish Fest Fans a wonderful opportunity to actually go to Ireland, and experience all the very best of Irish Culture and Music in the place where it all began.
The trip includes a stay in beautiful County Donegal, described last year as ‘the coolest place in the world’ by National Geographic Magazine. The four days along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way will include cultural talks and Irish language, guided excursions to historic locations and a visit to Derry City in Northern Ireland, as well as nightly live music gigs performed by the North West’s best traditional musicians, The Henry Girls, The Logues, and Johnny Gallagher and the Boxtie Band.
Then it is on to Ireland’s Capital City for Ireland’s best music festival- Tradfest. Tradfest has quickly become not only a festival displaying the cream of both Irish and international traditional and folk artists, but an opportunity to visit some of the city’s most beautiful historical buildings in which these performances take place.
This trip will introduce visitors to the very best that Ireland offers – the unspoilt beauty, hospitality and culture of the Atlantic Coast, and the lively energetic heartbeat of Dublin City. You’d expect the pubs and the music, but you’ll also have the opportunity to learn about Ireland’s history and culture with excellent guest speakers, local guides and authentic experiences every day.
