An Chonair Bar Session
An Chonair Bar in Dingle has long been a venue for traditional Irish music. A new session has been added every Monday at 9 pm. The location is Spa Road on the way out of town towards Conor Pass.
The leading musician is piper Con Durham and he is usually joined by various musician friends. I attended the session last Monday and I must say it was fabulous. The atmosphere was warm and cosy with an open fire and the music was great.
We had Con on the pipes, two fiddles, guitar, banjo, penny whistle, harmonica and mandolin.
The customers were very engaged and there were several bursts of spontaneous dancing to the lively music.
