Folk Concert at St. James’ Church

ST.  James Church

At St. James’ Church, Main Street, Dingle, in a quiet setting with good acoustics, you can hear many musicians that play in the pub sessions. Performances are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Tickets at the door cost €15. Due to limited seating it is recommended to get advance tickets which are also less expensive from the Tourist Office, music shops in town or at Murphys Ice Cream.

The event is put on by Eoin Duignan, uilleann piper, low whistle player and composer. Eoin usually takes to the stage at some point in the evening himself.  He has been living in Dingle for the past 20 years. For more information on Eoin and his recorded music go to his website.

At St. James’s you will have an opportunity to hear some of the best traditional Irish musicians in the locality. Also, Eoin attracts talented musicians from other parts of the country. The presentations are intimate and the standard is very high.
St. James’ Church is a small and simple structure built in the year 1807. It is said that the original church on the same site was built by the Spanish. After the reformation it was taken over by Church of Ireland. Amy Winehouse and Jarvis Cocker have also played there.
