Music Summer School For Strings in Connemara

2019 is our 12th year! Happily, we keep going from strength to strength and once again the Festival will take place in Kylemore Abbey from Sunday the 21st July to Friday the 26th July.

Ceol na Mara is a non residential course designed with families in mind. In addition to the classes featuring both classical and traditional music, the location gives everyone time to enjoy the beautiful Connemara countryside.

"Of course the music is to the forefront as it should be, but it is the holistic nature of the whole event that brings us back. It is good for the soul. We are already looking forward to next year. "
Aoife Rochford, Co Mayo
