Music, dance & storytelling

Music, singing, storytelling and dancing was once a way of life in Creggan, when neighbours visited each other (Ceili) for entertainment and to pass the time.  

 These traditions were passed on from one generation to another and the story is told that few nights passed without music being heard in some of the houses in the district. Musicians were always welcome in any of the houses and they were always sure to get people on their feet to dance. 

As well as the impromptu dances there were many planned, and often marked a significant event in the community such as some young person emigrating or returning home.  In keeping these traditions alive An Creagán provides a full programme of cultural events all year round, from singing and music sessions to dance and storytelling nights.  Have a look at our events section for upcoming events.

Entertainment can be arranged upon request for all our guests.
