Killary Sessions 2017
For our Killary Sessions 2017, we were delighted to succeed in booking Sean Keane who joined us on Saturday 3rd June and Declan O’Rourke took take to the stage on Friday August 11th.
The Killary Sessions combine a wonderful musical experience with a boat trip on the Killary, hosted by Killary Fjord Boat Tours aboard the Connemara Lady. With full bar on board and stunning views of the surrounding scenery from inner and outer decks, the evening is memorable for all and events sell out quickly.
Killary Fjord Boat Tours has been operating on the Killary Fjord for 17 years and the boat is licensed for 150 passengers. It is spacious and comfortable, with a highly experienced and professional crew. There are plentiful seating areas both inside and out and toilets, café and bar on board. Tours of the Fjord run several times daily through the summer.
Sean Keane, Saturday June 3rd – EVENT OVER
Sean Keane is justifiably one of the most popular performers in Connemara, blending seannós, folk and country in a style he has made his own. The boat’s café/bar area provides ideal acoustics and an intimate atmosphere, complementing Sean’s unique voice.
Declan O’Rourke, Friday August 11th – EVENT OVER
A native of County Dublin, Declan is well known in Ireland and further afield. With rich, soulful vocals and astute songwriting abilities he is a performer like no other.
