If by chance you’ve passed The Blue Haven Hotel on a Summer’s night in the beautiful coastal town of Kinsale, Co. Cork, you may well have stumbled upon the bewitching sound of the well-known Irish Traditional Music group, Arundó. The band’s music will coax you inside like a siren luring the sailors of old on to the rocks!
Inside, the bar is filled with the haunting tones of the ancient Irish Uilleann Pipes, the thundering beat of the bodhrán or the strains of a beautiful Irish ballad and soaring above them all, the light intricate melodies of the mandolin. Then, without warning, two flamboyant dancers appear and dazzle the audience with their mesmerizing footwork tapping out rhythmical beats to the ancient music filling the air! Come and enjoy a taste of authentic Irish culture with Arundó and dancers from the Kiely Walsh Dance Academy.
