Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre

The Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre is dedicated to the life and work of musician and traditional song collector, Seamus Ennis.

Located in the tiny, picturesque village of Naul in North County Dublin, about 30 mins drive from Dublin City, this traditional music and cultural centre hosts a wide variety of currently well-known musicians, songwriters, and artists.
