Tuesday 3rd & Wednesday 4th March

This tour takes us to the rural heartland of North Galway to a thatched Cottage of significant renown. This is the home where three generations of the famous Keane family lived and played their music and sang their songs that have now become famous all over the world. Back in a time when there was just one Radio Station in Ireland, broadcasters like Ciaran MacMathuna recorded the music and songs from Carragh Cottage, it gave the world a glimpse of the talent of the third generation of the Keane family. The treasure that is Carragh Cottage is indeed a unique attraction, a part of our history and a real cultural experience with a musician and singer who threads the stages all over the world.

Here we have the opportunity to savour this where it all started in Caherlistrane and rest assured that John Candy and Candy Tours will leave no stone unturned to make this a visit that will live long in the memory.

We will arrive in Carragh at 1.30pm on Tuesday 3rd for Lunch with the Keane family and afterword’s a session with Sean Keane. We will say goodbye to the Keane family in the late evening and travel to Flannery’s Hotel in Galway for Dinner and our own session in the Hotel.

 After breakfast on Wednesday we will travel back to our original pickup points
