Sessions near Lennane, Connemara

Sessions near Lennane, Connemara

Hi
I’ll be spending a hill-walking/celebrating significant birthday (60th) week in a cottage near Lennane, Connemara from 18-25th May and was hoping someone may be able to suggest places to get a few tunes in the neighbourhood?
I’m a completely house-trained and etiquette-aware flute/whistle player who won’t ruin your session but I appreciate you may not be keen to advertise your gathering publicly so a PM would be fine if you’d like a few tunes during that week .. or know of a good place to go.

I’ve seen the Clifden and Westport listings but wondered if there was anything else nearby?

Thanks
Chris

Sorry, the senior moments are starting already.
Should be Leenane - phone insisted on re-spelling for me!

Re: Sessions near Lennane, Connemara

Leenane is a fairly small spot, nice pub last time I was there but don’t recall any trad. Best bet is to enquire when there as to whether there’s anyone about who might play a few tunes. Good selection of hills though, plenty to choose from :)

Thanks Kilcash
Yes, asking when we’re there sounds like the way to go failing anything more specific offered up here.
We chose Leenane as a handy centre for the hill access .. looks well placed for good days out. Mind, living in the Scottish Highlands means we’re spoilt for good hills!
A good session nearby would have been the icing on the cake but I suspect we’ll need to travel for tunes.
Looking forward it.
