Are you are looking to develop your Irish fiddle playing? Are you looking for an Irish holiday too? This is the place for you!

We also run retreats for a variety of other instruments. Whatever your instrument - we have the best Irish music tutors available to teach you. Highly experienced teachers and musicians join us at Fiddlers Retreat and share their knowledge and skills with students. We work around dates that suit you. 

You will get expert and concise workshops that will get you music making in jig-time. We get people travelling to us on their own, fiddlers and non-fiddlers, groups of friends and large Fiddle Orchestra groups. Our itinerary is flexible as we maximise your weeks enjoyment and experience. 


Are there particular tunes you would like to learn or figure out Irish fiddle techniques, the bowing pattern of a certain part in a reel? Have you ever joined in a real Irish music sessions? You will be spoiled for choice regarding traditional pubs and the differences between Traditional Irish Music Pub Sessions are subtle but very evident and interesting to observe. You are welcome to join in if they have the confidence and tunes! 

We have developed a recipe for success as one of Ireland's leading Irish Fiddle Schools for the last fifteen years. We offer bespoke packages, we never have more than a handful of guests attending during any given week - it may be one guest or up to six - so tuition will be in a group situation for two hours approximately - making for a very personalised experience. There is no rushing around here, you are gently guided and given the time to explore your music-making adventure.


You come as a guest and leave as a friend.
