Youth Music Tours to Ireland
A tour to Dublin combines vibrant city life, where narrow medieval streets lead to Georgian squares and trendy shops, with peaceful and picturesque green countryside. For groups who enjoy alternative experiences, we can arrange performances in Dublin’s most-visited tourist attraction – the Guinness Storehouse®, followed by a tour of the site and, of course, a tasting session… for the adults only!
Where to Perform
Church of the Assumption, Howth
For a more personal experience, you may wish to choose a concert or recital in this parish church located in the lovely fishing port of Howth. Our groups have received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic welcome from the delightful hosts and local congregation at this venue. Concerts have been rounded off with complimentary tea and sandwiches and our groups have left feeling like honoured guests! The church is happy to accept either choirs or orchestras.
Atrium of the Guinness Storehouse
A renowned No.1 visitor attraction which welcomes performances from all types of musical ensemble! This is a real tour highlight for many of our groups and can be combined with an educational visit of the Guinness Storehouse. With hundreds of thousands of international visitors each year, this tourist hotspot offers a captive audience and the unique stage for up and coming performers.
St. Patrick's Cathedral & Christchurch Cathedral
Choirs are able to sing either a lunchtime recital or as part of a service in both of these stunning and prestigious venues. Both venues are popular with visiting choirs and so requests need to be made well in advance.
St. Stephen's Green
In the heart of Dublin, St Stephen’s Green is a haven loved by locals and tourists alike in the summer. The excellent open-air bandstand hosts a series of concerts throughout the summer months and on a sunny day, you’re guaranteed a great audience.
For a more personal experience and lovely welcome from locals, you may like to choose to have a concert or recital in a parish church either within Dublin itself or in one of the lovely seaside or country towns outside of Dublin. Churches are happy to accept either choirs or orchestras.
