sessions near Clifden?

Hello- I am a flute player, lover of ITM who happens to live in the mountains in India. No traditional music here, so I get my fix going to Co. Kilkenny (almost) every summer. This year someone has offered me a cottage in Connemara, between the villages of Clegan and Claddaghduff, for the month of May. So I am wondering if anyone can recommend any pubs or sessions ? or anyting else in that area. I was only as far as Clifden before, and that was in the dim reaches of the last century. thanks- or if you want to drop by by for a tune….

I would suggest checking with Mary Lovett of dustybanjos.com since that is their home turf. The Dusty Banjos website says Summer sessions take place in Oliver’s Bar & Restaurant in Cleggan, Co Galway (7 miles from Clifden) but I would check to see if that’ll be going on in May.

How did you like Kilkenny?

We had a lovely session at Griffin’s last time we were there.
