West Clare Music Makers


West Clare Music Makers

Earlier in the year, while visiting the West of Ireland , I had the opportunity to meet Harry Hughes at the West Clare Music Makers museum in Miltown Malbay, and learn the story of traditional music, song and dance.

At this excellent visitor attraction you can read first-hand accounts about renowned musicians. Enjoy a 8-minute film telling the story behind the music and learn about the origin of the instruments and the people who played them.

View “The Session”, a specially commissioned 14-minute film featuring some of our most talented local musicians, playing the music most loved by the great musical masters of County Clare.

This attraction brings together years of research by Oidhreacht an Chláir and draws the majority of its content from their extensive archive.

By supporting this attraction you will be directly contributing to the preservation of our rich musical heritage.

Open From 10am  to 6pm Each Day(May to September)or by pre booking on +353(0)65 7085785 throughout the year.
