There will be traditional Irish music from these stars that will set the place alight, songs that will fill the heart with joy and sadness and craic that will leave a smile on your face and put a spring in your step for the rest of the week or even the entire summer if you're lucky!

We will have more surprise musicians and dancers throughout the weekend so come along for the genuine feeling of festivity and let yourself get carried away by the magic of it...

Dance with us, sing with us, drink with us and support us - the first fully fledged Irish traditional music festival in the 'bul! Absolutely not to be missed! If we see that there is a thirst and an audience for this type of music we will bring more of it to you, ( and more and more! ), right to your doorstep on the shores of the Bosphorous...

Your support will convince us to continue with this Trojan for this, our first festival, do put a call out to your friends and even your enemies, invite them along for the great time you'll have together...and skip home drumming a beat to an Irish tune...!

Amazing musicians from the Black Sea will join the Irish musicians throughout the weekend, there will be sessions, workshops and concerts in prime venues...our final programme will come out in the next few days outlining all events from Thursday to out, the Celts they are a-coming to these shores.. once again! Céad mile fáilte romhaibh!
