Flying visit (well, ferry really) over to County Kerry in June with my (grown-up) children, between Sat 10th and Thursday 15th June.

Main purpose is a long-awaited visit to Skellig Michael, but I'd love to take in a pub session- anyone know of anything going on that week, please?
All information gratefully received.

I know it's a distance from Waterville, but o'Flahertys in Dingle is a great place for music. The Boss man is a VERY good musician on Guitar, Banjo, Accordion, Flute and probably others.

Indeed, in Dingle I enjoyed O'Flaherty's.
For the cosy atmosphere I could have sat in Curran's for a week or two. And there was a little bit of music there on the couple of evenings I popped in, not till 9.00/9.30 if I remember.

From all you need to know about Kerry website:Would need to confirm first though. It may not be totally accurate by now.

Traditional Music in County Kerry

Visiting County Kerry and stuck for something to do in the evening? You could do worse than head out into a local pub (which, be default, will be an "original Irish pub") and then join a traditional Irish session? Most sessions start at around 9:30 pm or whenever a few musicians have gathered. Call ahead because the days and times may recently have changed.

If I could get to Dingle, I'd visit O'Sullivan's Courthouse Pub. Owned and operated by a fine singer and guitarist, Tommy O'Sullivan, and his lovely wife (who's from Texas). They feature musicians there every night:

I was in Buckleys, Killarney Arbutus Hotel I think a few weeks ago. A place often recommended for good sessions. There was a small group who I believe attend a few nights a week. They were excellent musicians with some great tunes. But when it came to songs they were a big disappointment. They same hackneyed repertoire you'll hear in every tourist bar in the country, whether Temple Bar, Shop street, Galway or Kinsale. Wild Rover, Molly Malone, etc. Finished up with Long Way to Tipperary/Pack up your troubles. I heard only one Kerry song. The singer was very good and I suppose they were playing what they thought the audience wanted to hear, but couldn't they mix it a bit for God's sake.

That's my cranky view of what I think you'll find in a lot of places advertising "Trad". But I have to admit the visitors seem to love it.

When I visited Ireland, I found two good sources. One is the front deks of a local hotel. The other is the Tourist Information Office. Ask if there is any "Traditional" being played.

In Scotland, a poster in the Youth Hostel window led us a wonderful little festival.

I saw you recommend that in another thread, leenia.
I'm looking for a locals' session though, rather than one aimed at tourists.

Thanks anyway, and thanks all for the input.
