Ce vei face

Kilfenora is steeped in traditional Irish music and history, and is home to the most famous of all Irish Ceili Bands, The Kilfenora Ceili Band. We will walk through the ancient village of Kilfenora exploring the history and traditional music of this iconic Irish village, where a monastic site was founded by Saint Fachtna in AD560. There is also evidence that Kilfenora was a holy place in pre-Christian times.

We will visit the Cathedral, the Celtic High Crosses, and the 10th-12th century carvings. You will learn the detailed history of this, one of Ireland's smallest dioceses, where the Pope is still the bishop (that's a great story in itself)!

We will listen to some recordings of the Kilfenora Ceili Band, Ireland's oldest and most famous traditional music band, founded in 1909 and still playing to this day, and you can try out your dancing or drumming skills to the music of the Kilfenora Ceili Band.

We will meet and chat with local people who live, work and play music in this historical village.

There is also an option to book in for an evening of music and stories with local musicians at Doolin Music House, starting at 7pm in nearby Doolin.

I really enjoyed the tour with Janet. Kilfenora is a really special place, full of history and culture, and Janet made sure we left with as much knowledge of Kilfenora as we could. We learnt about the earliest settlements, the local farming techniques and the Kilfenora band of course. Janet and Marianne were friendly and very welcoming tour guides and I'd recommend a tour with them to everyone.

Gute historischer Hintergrund zu den ältesten christlichen Stätten Irlands, zu den keltischen Kreuzgrabsteine, Einstieg zu ältester bekannter irischer Musik und den dazu gehörenden Tänzen.
