Go to the Celtic Music Festival. It goes for about 10 days. There's a College of Gaelic there and they really speak and teach that language as well as sing in the old words.

We stopped because several tour books listed this. Yes, it is a tourist trap but really fun. I enjoyed the interactive activities of dancing and fiddle playing. I assume at the height of the season when entertainment is live, this place hops. We were there...More
