Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018, this year was the twentieth anniversary of the festival and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Musicians came from near and far and lots of great sessions were to be seen and heard.

On the opening night Two time Polka gave a cracking gig in the Lighthouse bar, every body was up dancing within a few minutes.

Watch a video from the Friday night in the Lighthouse bar here, Two Time Polka

Visit Dursey Island

Visit Dursey Island with “An Postman Pat”. Across the Dursey sound in Ireland’s only cable car. Which is the only cable car in Europe crossing open water. On his three times a week trip delivering letters to the islanders for the past 37 years. All year around Pat Neill delivers the post to the islanders in his special van. A trip to Dursey Island is a great thing to be doing. In the summer there is even a bus which can take you from the cable car to the west end. Pat gives us a great insight into Dursey Island.
