Live music is at the heart of Kilkenny’s social scene and now that it’s back, its time to embrace all the sounds and rhythms of the very best of traditional music as Kilkenny TradFest returns!
Kilkenny has always been one of the country’s top destinations for live music, offering everything from live music sessions, sing-alongs, from trad to folk and ballads. From 16th March – 20th March, Kilkenny TradFest 2022 will bring live, in person performances and a brand new series of concerts to take place at the Medieval Mile Museum.
