EXPERIENCE TRADFEST TEMPLE BAR

WHAT'S ON

Our January concert series is the pinnacle of the TradFest year, featuring an array of folk and trad artists at the peak of their powers in stunning, historic locations in Dublin. But there’s so much more to the festival. The Smithwicks Sessions offers an intimate alternative, with free ticketed gigs in the best pubs in Temple Bar. Our Showcase Nights do just that – giving the best new talent an opportunity to shine for industry insiders while TradFringe gives folks a chance to explore the interesting stuff that happens on the periphery, with a programme of cultural events in Dublin city. There’s something to surprise and delight around every cobbled corner and for the littlest visitors our friends at The Ark, Temple Bar have arts and craft workshops to spark their imaginations.
