The Brú Ború summer season of shows are in full swing.

Located at the foot of the historic Rock of Cashel the Brú Ború shows of traditional music, song and dance run for five nights each week (Tuesday-Saturday inclusive) right up until late August and commencing at 9pm.

The unique Brú Ború performing group have achieved international recognition on five continents. They are in constant demand throughout the world because of their performance of Irish authentic traditional music, song and dance.

The group have accompanied President Mary McAleese to Oman where they performed for the Sultan of Oman. They also represented Ireland at the World Expo on four occasions in Osaka (Japan), Seville in Spain, Nagoya (Japan) and a group of 30 artists accompanied President Mary McAleese to Shanghai (China) for the 2010 World Expo where they presented their show for President Mary McAleese and her Chinese hosts on Ireland’s national day. Most recently members of the group travelled to Lesotho where they performed for St Patrick’s Day 2012 and had the honour of performing for the King of Lesotho.

This group comprises the very best and most talented of musicians, singers and dancers. Enjoy an evening of live traditional entertainment with renowned accordion player Bobby Gardner, the delightful airs of fiddler Eileen O’Brien and Tipperary’s finest singers Nora Butler and Tadhg Maher, just to name a few. The show is delivered with verve, colour, panache and style in the intimate settings of the Brú Ború theatre, but the night does not finish there!

Following on from the stage show, performers and visitors mingle in the Teach Ceoil for some more entertainment where visitors can dance a jig, sing a song or play a tune – a lively Cashel set or Siege of Ennis often requires a visit to the adjoining bar, you can also enjoy tea or coffee and a scone.

Prior to the evening’s entertainment why not avail of the restaurant facilities. Enjoy fine food with good friends in the awe inspiring atmosphere of the Rock of Cashel. Irish recipies, home baking and good fresh produce are the ingredients which combine to make a dining experience in Brú Ború a memorable one. Pre-booking is required for the restaurant.

Brú Ború also incorporates the Sounds of History cultural exhibition. The subterranean chambers, seven metres underground at the base of the famous Rock of Cashel, echo to the story of Ireland from ancient times to the present day. Through the passage of time, the visitor’s journey is marked by milestones of achievement, conflict and renewal. The facilities in Brú Ború also include genealogy services, Teach Ceoil, conference rooms and the Comhaltas Archive. Contact Brú Ború on 062 61122 or e-mail
