Monday nights in Bunbeg
Does the traditional music night still happen every Monday night at the HudiBeg in Bunbeg? I'm planning a trip to Northern Ireland down to Donegal (again - we loved it last time) in August this year, and have heard about the special weekly event. However this was on an old post, and I want to be sure it still happens please, plus any other recommmendations for Donegal.
Re: Monday nights in Bunbeg
Monday night and Tuesday night are Traditional Music sessions in HudiBegs in Bunbeg! Watch out for Stephen Campbell 'fiddle palyer extraordinaire! he plays ion HudiBegs :)
Another great venue for Traditonal music is
The Glen Tavern, Glenties : every Saturday night
Musicians: Jimmy & Vincent Campbel, Ernan O'Donnell and others
from Glenties take the old Ballybofey Road - after about 3 miles there is the Glen Tavern right in front of you,
Also Peter Olivers (The Corner House) in Ardara, Trdational music sessions every night of the week
Travel Tips for Bunbeg
"Really great B+B"
We stayed in Breslins B+B in May after it had been recommended to us by friends who stayed there last year- after staying there for three days we would highly recommend it also. The B+B is close (walking distance) to the local shops, pubs, beaches and also the harbour where we got the ferry to Tory Island. The room was way better than the usual B+B standard and was, even more importantly for us, very clean. The breakfast fare was top notch. If you're in the west Donegal area you should stay there- it's a really lovely family run place.
Bunbeg and Donegal
We stayed here in Bunbeg for a weekend.
To be honest there really isnt much to see and do.
It is a gorgeous part of the country, and I reccommend socialising with the locals in the pub and walking taking in all of the scenery that it around you!
It is also interesting, because it is a Gaeltacht area, and so a lot of the locals speak Irish, a very cool language to hear and try and read!
