Westport Ceili & Two Hand Dancing Weekend Music with Martin Duggan
26th – 28th October: 3 Day Break
It’s time to pack your dancing shoes and head to Westport for a weekend of tapping your toes and clicking your heels. We are delighted to have one of Ireland’s best ceili musicians, Martin Duggan, providing the music this year again. This weekend break is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy a great weekend’s craic, and is not limited to dancers! As well as dancing we promise a weekend of good food, lively music, and accommodation in a luxurious hotel in the one of the liveliest towns in the West!
Fri 26th: Letterkenny – Sligo - Westport
We leave Letterkenny and enjoy a leisurely journey through Sligo and into Mayo to our hotel in Westport. This evening you can relax and unwind in the hotel or enjoy a stroll by the harbour. After dinner this evening there is live music and dancing to get those toes tapping!
Sat 27th: Free Day in Westport – or – Day Trip to Achill
A day at your leisure to explore the bustling streets of Westport, maybe do a spot of shopping, or enjoy a walk in the beautiful grounds of Westport House. For anyone who would prefer to sit back and be chauffeured, we have a day tour along the northern shore of Clew Bay before crossing the causeway to Achill Island, the largest island off the Coast of Ireland. The island is dominated by two peaks, Slievemore and Croghaun, and is home to Kildavnet Castle, associated with Granuaile (Grace O’Malley) the famous “Pirate-Queen of the West”. We return to our hotel with time to relax, enjoy dinner, and another lively night of dancing.
Sun 28th: Westport – Sligo - Letterkenny
After a leisurely morning we leave Westport and return home, humming tunes from the weekend, and with a spring in our step!
