The popular reality show, The Voice of Ireland, is the ultimate talent show. Taking the world by storm and gripping the nation, is thanks in part to the top Irish musician coaches; Bressie (Nial Breslin), Sharon Corr, Kian Egan and Brian Kennedy.
The esteemed coaches are known throughout the world for their global successes, but it is in Ireland that it all began. Which is not suprising seeing as music is a huge part of Irish culture and that live music, both popular and traditional, can be heard in many bars, clubs, cafes, halls, streets, and many other places around the country.
There are some fantastic places to experience live music, on your vacation to Ireland, including popular Irish festivals of all different musical tastes; be it in a lively bar in the busy city centre of Dublin or as part of the fiddle fair in the picturesque fishing village of Baltimore in west Cork.
Ireland is very accessible by car and it is easy to travel on a self drive vacations Ireland around the country to sample an array of wonderful musicians playing live up and down the country.
