The Wild Atlantic Way is a tourism trail on the West Coast of Ireland. The stunning 2,500km of coastline offers breathtaking scenery, invigorating sea swells, gastronomic gems and a warm welcoming atmosphere. The WAW is a haven for traditional Irish musicians. In every town, village and remote townland dotted along the Western coast, there is a wealth of traditional Irish music sessions to be enjoyed. These sessions are informal and often impromptu, making the Wild Atlantic Way a little piece of music heaven.
November 2018 Ennis Trad Festival
The Ennis Trad Festival celebrates traditional Irish music in County Clare – an area recognised worldwide as an Irish Music hub. The festival provides a platform for local, national and international musicians to reconnect on an annual basis. It is a welcoming place for those who love to hear (or play) Irish Traditional music of the highest quality in its most natural setting. The festival brings together the very best of Irish traditional musicians, singers and dancers in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Wild Atlantic Music Tours have a number of tours focused specifically on the WAW. All our tour groups are accompanied by professional Irish musicians. The November 2018 tour will be joined by Eoin O’Neill, the award winning trad musician. Eoin will introduce you to a wealth of trad musicians as you travel through County Clare. Venues include famous trad locations such as Doolin, Miltown Malbay and Ennis. In addition to attending sessions at the Trad Fest, Wild Atlantic Music Tours have also organised a number of sessions dedicated to the group. These sessions will feature local musicians who will share music and stories in an informal and intimate environment.
