Scéal Exhibition


Scéal An Tradisiúin is a unique exhibition that tells the story of Traditional Irish Music, Song and Dance through the ages. Learn about the man who is credited with saving traditional music and why Irish Dancing is loved and learned around the world today.

From the ancient instruments of the Celts right through to the phenomenon that is Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann today, ‘Scéal’ shows the unique role that music and dance has played in Irish culture and society over two millennia, how it migrated with the Irish diaspora and has now captured the imagination of a worldwide audience.

Complete with its own Museum of Musical Instruments, ‘Scéal’ also highlights the significant contribution of musicians from Westmeath and the Midlands to the tradition down through the years.
