Ireland, for such a little country, has produced some of the greatest and most influential musical acts the world has seen, and still today we make a remarkable impact on the international music scene. Stroll through the capital and discover the stories behind some of our much loved musicians, from famous Rock & Blues acts such as Thin Lizzy, U2, and Rory Gallagher, to our native traditional music & song and the likes of The Dubliners and Planxty, who drove a traditional Irish music revival here in the 60s & 70s.
On this tour you will visit musically important sights & places, including The Music Wall of Fame, Temple Lane studios, & Litton Lane studio (former U2 rehearsal studio), Phil Lynott statue, Rory Gallagher's guitar, Fishamble Street (where Handel first performed his famous Classical oratorio Messiah), hear street performers & amazing buskers, learn about our traditional music from a local Uilleann Piper, hear Irish trad sessions, drop in on rock, folk or blues gigs and open-mics in local pubs which have become institutions on the music scene here, see memorabilia and pictures adorning the walls of the greats which have graced their stages and bar-stools, their long legacy of nurturing musical creativity in the city and which today still embrace the exciting up and coming bands and musicians striving to be the next big thing from this humble island to wow the music world!
Please note this tour is best to do in the early evening, however we can of course tailor it to suit your schedule as desired.
You can also include as an add-on a more in-depth focus on Traditional Irish Music with a local traditional musician including group lessons on an Irish musical instrument, the Tin-Whistle. The Tin-Whistle itself is included free - an ideal souvenir and a fun, valuable experience for the individual or group.
