Description

The Belfast Traditional Music Trail is a unique way to experience Irish music in Belfast.

With two professional musicians as your guides, you will be treated to a performance of traditional tunes, songs and stories, all of which make up your own personal ‘session’ as walk through cobbled alleyways, past famous landmarks and on to private bars in some of the city’s oldest buildings.

There are 3 stops along the trail where you can enjoy a local beer, cider, whiskey or Guinness while learning about the instruments, language, customs and history that make up Ireland’s vibrant musical tradition. Join this interactive experience and discover why Belfast is considered one of Ireland’s best cities for traditional Irish music.

The trail lasts around two and a half hours, starting off at 4pm at the Second Fiddle, the trail then moves on to one of Belfast’s oldest buildings, McHugh’s, where there will be more ceol agus craic (music and fun!) in store.

Tickets available at the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre, or to book tickets online, please visit www.belfasttradtrail.com.

Tours run every Saturday at 4pm and are also available for ad hoc private bookings. Please contact directly for any queries on private bookings: :info@belfasttradtrail.com.
