Overseas visitors to Ireland increased by almost 9pc last year, the city has been underperforming against its potential - not to mention city break competitors such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen.

it is estimated that as many as 5,000 people a day could pass through the new Tourist Information Office in the peak months despite fewer visitors utilising traditional tourist offices caused by the range of digital tools now avaialble at their disposal.

This festival started out in 2005 as a small niche traditional music festival, a first for Dublin. It wanted to create something special – a festival showcasing the cream of both Irish and international trad and folk artists while also providing a stage to promote the next generation of Irish musicianship. From modest beginnings (just 500 tickets in our first year), the festival has gone from strength to strength, with 8,000 tickets sold in 2014. The past decade has has seen the festival grow in terms of size, ambition and musical breadth, with a line-up that now appeals to the purist and the merely curious alike. Although Tradfest is now Ireland’s largest festival of traditional music we now also feature artists from the worlds of folk, nu-folk, and even (whisper it) rock and roll! We want to keep it special – we are still a boutique Winter festival – closing the door on the darkest season and ushering in the light and energy of Spring. TradFest also offers concert goers unique opportunities to experience live music in some of Dublin’s most historic places. From the breathtaking nave of St Patrick’s Cathedral to the grandeur of City Hall, this is the difference between memorable and unforgettable.
