From June 28th to the 17th of August you can access arts, music heritage and history in the Brú Ború Cultural Centre, Cashel. Located at the foot of the historic Rock of Cashel, their shows of Irish traditional music, song and dance run for five nights each week (Tuesday – Saturday inclusive) starting at 9p.m. each night. The show is delivered with verve, colour, panache and style in the intimate settings of the Brú Ború theatre. After the stage show, performers and visitors can mingle in the Teach Ceoil for some more entertainment where visitors can dance a jig, sing a song or play a tune. If you need some refreshments after all the activity, you can take a visit to the adjoining bar. Pre-show dinners are available.
