Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School - June 28th to July 3rd, 2020

The 10th Annual Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School takes place in Kilmovee, Co. Mayo from Sunday, 28th June to Friday, 3rd July. If you would like to know more about our Summer School, please watch the short video above. Our Summer School offers unbeatable value with a week of classes for just €55 (U21). Your class fee gains you entry to all of our events during the week, including the Official Opening Concert on Monday, 29th June with GOITSE, recently named Ireland's Traditional Group of the Year. Our tutors are the best available and all based locally, so you are learning the finest West of Ireland music, song, dance and Gaeilge for the week. All our classes are in one venue and we offer unique elements at our Summer School, including the option to take morning and afternoon classes, as well as Le Chéile - a group performance class for 15 to 20 year olds. A full range of accommodation is available in the area, including Caravan Parks, Houses, Cottages, B&Bs and Hotels. We even have a heated swimming pool in Kilmovee if you get time during our amazing week to visit it. We recommend that you book in advance to secure your class as places are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. You can book online or contact Kilmovee FRC if you have any queries: (094) 9649814, email: admin.kilmoveefrc@kilmovee.info. Bígí linn!
