An Urban Fleadh, the two-day Festival of Irish Traditional music, takes place in Wolfe Tone Square, Dublin, on the August Bank Holiday weekend each year. Admission is free.

Formally part of the North-Side Music festival, the Wolfe Tone Square (Jervis St) festival welcomes musicians from Germany, France, the Netherlands, England and other countries this year.

The Call to Dance features a traditional Irish caller announcing the steps and inviting all to dance. In the Bodhrán Buzz, aspirants can learn to play the basics of the Bodhrán.

Sean-Nós Dancing and singing, a céilí band performance, and experimental funk and jazz elements make up the varied programme.
