In the immortal words of Christy Moore, "If it's music you want, you should go to Clare", and the capital of music in Clare is the little village of Doolin. Over the years Hotel Doolin has hosted all the greats on the Irish Trad & Folk Scene including Paul Brady, Finbar Furey, Sharon Shannon, Clannad, Lunasa, John Sheahan, Martin Hayes, Noel Hill, Mairtín O'Connor, Luka Bloom, Scullion, Lisa Hannigan, The Stunning, Mick Flannery, Damien Dempsey, Declan O'Rourke, The Hothouse Flowers, Dervish, Andy Irvine, Dónal Lunny, Liam O'Flynn & Paddy Glackin and many, many more.

With nightly music in Fitz's Pub or the Hotel Doolin gardens and unique events in The Attic Venue or our Barn, music is always coursing through the walls of Hotel Doolin culminating in the annual Doolin Folk Festival, founded by Hotel Doolin and the highlight of the musical year in North Clare.
