The Irish Folk Experience takes place at the Glenisland National School, nestled in the foothills of Nephin Mountain, County Mayo. The school has been a landmark for over 150 years and retains the original stone building, with modern additions.
A vast array of musical instruments are ready for you to try in the fully interactive workshops. Choose from the Family Folk Band, Bodhrán, Traditional Instruments, Sound Effects and Baby Jam experiences. Your teacher will get you going with some basic instructions and have you playing a full song together by the end.
The Irish Folk Experience is suitable for all ages and abilities so it’s perfect for school groups, children’s birthday parties, family activities or even work events. You never know, there might even be a gig in the school yard.
- 100% hands on fun for everyone with traditional Irish musical instruments.
- No musical experience is necessary.
- You will be playing a song by the end of the workshop.
