Celebrate your visit to Ireland with an Irish Traditional Music Adventure!
Based on the Wild Atlantic Way, the Inishowen Peninsula hosts the best of Irish welcomes. Our Irish Traditional Music Adventure is the thing to do if you visit Derry and Donegal, bringing traditional music right to you, and taking you on a heart-inspiring adventure in the Irish countryside.
You will stay overnight at the acclaimed Inishowen Lodge Bed and Breakfast, nestled on the banks for the beautiful Foyle estuary. The history of the Foyle is steeped in mythology and heritage stretching back to pre-christian times when Mananaan McLirr was the recognised Sea-God in Ireland.
Mananaan’s Son, Feabhail, gave his name to the mighty waterway of the Foyle (anglicised). You will choose a half day adventure by water (Stand up paddle board, kayaking or coasteering) or by cycle or hiking on one of the many small roadways or tracks with a majestic view of the Foyle during your stay. The choice is yours.
Equally ancient to the area is the music of Inishowen which has been revived in recent years by the Inishowen Traditional Music Project. This musical tradition is rich and undergoing intense revival by many local families and celebrated musicians. You will get the opportunity for a small group of local players to perform for you at your guesthouse during your Irish Traditional Music Adventure.
You will have a unique opportunity to meet the musicians first hand, chat to them and learn about the oral tradition that gives rise to traditional Irish music. Many of the tunes they play relate to the rhythms and stories in rural life- they abound with anecdote and humour- and will provide an enriching 2 hour music session for you.
This tour is an experiential feast of culture and immersion in the local area of Inishowen. It is a rare treat to add to your itinerary on the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. Simply book your Tour and contact us to provide your preferred half-day adventure (cycle, hike, stand up paddle board, kayaking, rock-climbing or coasteering).
You will be welcomed by Darren and Sinead in your guesthouse accommodation who will look after your overnight stay. Once you have chosen your adventure activity our instructor will arrange the most convenient time with you during your stay to take you outdoors.
All equipment is supplied and we can arrange changing into personal equipment to take place at the Guesthouse pre and post your activity. We look forward to welcoming you on your Irish Traditional Music Adventure.
