    The heartbeat of the city

    Every January, In Temple Bar, the air is buzzing with excitement for TradFest, in Temple Bar, the beating heart of Dublin city. It once started as a small, niche music festival in 2006, but it has since evolved into Ireland’s biggest festival of traditional music. Featuring the best of traditional Irish music, the festival even throws in folk, nu-folk and even some rock-n-roll in the mix, delighting purists and the curious alike.
