Step into the world of traditional Irish music and Irish dance with the creators of Galway’s famous Trad on the Prom.

No dancing or singing skills are required to enjoy this interactive look into the world of Irish trad music and dance. Join the husband and wife team of Chris and Máirín, along with their son Dara, at their home in Galway. The talented family are the creators of Trad on the Prom, Ireland’s top-ranked music, song, and dance show. They’ll bring you on an interactive journey to explore the best of their culture through Irish trad music, song, and dance. After you meet Chris and Máirín, the couple will give you a brief history on the roots of Irish culture before picking up the fiddle and guitar to entertain you with some lively reels and jigs. Those are two types of classic Irish tunes! You'll also hear about the traditional Irish music composed by Turlough O’Carolan. A blind harpist, O’Carolan went on to become one of the country’s greatest composers. Now, let’s take it to the dance floor. Or better yet, we’ll leave the professional dancing to Dara. He holds multiple world medals in Irish step dancing and will demonstrate some of the dances from his Trad on the Prom performance. He’ll tell you about the origins of Irish dance, as well as what it takes to be a world-class Irish dancer. Ask Máirín, Chris, and Dara any questions about Trad on the Prom or their musical background. Their talent and passion for their culture may even inspire you to sing along or jump up and dance to the live music.
