Millíní Music is an intimate 5 Day immersion course in Irish Traditional Music & Culture run by eminent flute-player Conal Ó Grada along with his wife Juliet. It is supported by a cast of the tradition's leading exponents in music, folklore and history.
An active holiday for those seeking to engage with all aspects of Irish culture, the course is run from Conal & Juliet's own home in the Irish speaking West Cork Gaeltacht of Múscraí, a magical rural setting located at the heart of Gaelic Ireland.
