Tomorrow it is the start of the Baltimore Fiddle Fair, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, and such is the popularity of this continually growing event that it now takes place throughout the entire village.
People travel from all over the world to enjoy this event, and event organisers are yet again expecting guests from Australia, the US, Japan, France, Germany, and the UK as well as from the rest of Ireland. Whilst in the area to enjoy the Fiddle Fair, guests exploring the area and looking for things to do in West Cork as well as the ideal place to stay, our hotel in West Cork is only a 10 minute drive from Baltimore, and ideally located in the town of Skibbereen, providing easy access to the region of West Cork and the events taking place during the Fiddle Fair.
The Fiddle Fair takes place in the village of Baltimore between 9th – 13th May 2012 and there is definitely much to be enjoyed over the next few days, and as the opening concert “Any Old Time” is already sold out, it would be wise to book up events including gigs and workshops ASAP to avoid disappointment.
