If you are in mood for a traditional music festival then you may head to temple bar at the end of the month. The annual Temple Bar Tradfest takes place between the 28th Jan to the 1st Feb 2015 in Temple Bar, Dublin. The Temple Bar TradFest, which first started in 2006, is celebrating its 10th birthday this year. The festival started out as a small niche traditional music festival showcasing both Irish and international traditional music. Over the past decade the festival has grown from strength to strength.
The festival showcases both established and up-and-coming artists from right across Ireland and overseas, allowing new and upcoming voices to get their music across to their audiences, as well as offering a full programme of events suitable for all the family.
The festival has a world class line up with a list of legends from the traditional music including Donovan, Sweeney’s Men, Liam O’Flynn, Hot House Flowers, The Undertones, Beoga & Big Band, Danú, Matt Molloy, John Carty & Arty McGlynn, Mick Flannery, Irish Conertina Ensemble, Cara Dillon & Band, DeBarra, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, Karine Polwart, Marc O’Reilly and The Hard Ground, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Paddy Glackin & Neil Martin, Levellers, and many, many more.

There are a large number of historic venues across Dublin hosting some of the shows including Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which makes the festival an attraction to music fans and also those interested in visiting historic Dublin.
