You’re invited to join us in a traditional Teach Airneal (Ceili House) which was a chance for everyone to get together for some socialising in times gone by. Brush up on your knowledge of the Irish language or learn something new about the meaning behind many of our words today and discover where they have evolved from.

Entry to this event is included in general admission ticket
