Live Music in Wexford

Live music, concerts and music festivals 

Live music sessions in Wexford are found at the heart of the County's entertainment scene. 

Find the best traditional music Wexford has on offer, but there are also plenty of events hosting Rock ‘n’ Roll, Jazz, Blues, Pop, Country and Acoustic sessions in pubs, bars or the Arts Centres. 

It’s also worth noting that it isn’t out of the ordinary to come across a spontaneous sing-song in smaller, rural pubs at any given time.
