Educational Music Workshops with the World Famous Bunratty Castle Entertainers

The Bunratty Castle Entertainers are bringing their vast musical experience to children and young people in the form of music workshops. These take place between the education suite in the Folk Park and the Great Hall of Bunratty Castle. Available Jan - Mar 2020

The 2 hour sessions focus on the main strands of the curriculum which are listening and responding, performing and composing.

The world famous castle entertainers have been industry leaders in their ensemble singing and instrumental performance since the establishment of the banquets in 1963 and have performed to over 5.5 million visitors.

Bringing this experience to children and young people is a truly unique and wonderful opportunity. Using voice as the principal instrument groups explore active music making in collaboration with the singers and musicians of the castle.

Why learn about Turlough O’Carolan in a book when you can experience his music first hand. Determine the difference between a madrigal and a ballet and learn about the different Irish composers who have arranged music for the entertainers.

Educational Music Workshop is €11 per student.
This includes general access to the Castle and Folk Park
Allow 3 hours for your tour to ensure you make it up to the castle and around the village street.
