A Musical Week in West Cork
The area of West Cork has a love of music and you will often happen across live current and traditional music being played in the pubs in Skibbereen and neighbouring towns of West Cork all year round. This week as we approach the summer bank Holiday weekend, there is even more music to be enjoyed in Skibbereen starting on Wednesday evening with Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, Irish Music and Dance at our very own Hotel West Cork at 9pm and then on Friday evening again here in our Ilen Bar we will have Traditional Irish Music with Gordon and Rose from 9pm.
Then as the weekend approaches the Skib Beats Festival will be sure to have the town rocking, as some top musical acts take to the stage in the main car park marquee on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July. The Saw Doctors, supported by Chapter Two play live on Saturday night and on Sunday night; Cathy Davey, Mundy and Jack L will perform live, closing this much anticipated festival. Doors on both nights will open at 7pm, concerts start at 8pm and are due to finish at 11pm. Event organisers have also arranged for free buses from all of West Cork to bring festival goers to and from the concerts on both nights! For Skibbereen accommodation or things to do in West Cork, we will be on hand to offer advice and tips on the best gigs to go to!
