The festival has now been running since 2002 and is a haven for fans who come from all over the world for this wonderful celebration of all things Rory. Rory is obviously a major part of Irish Rock N’ Roll history, being one of the best-known and beloved guitarists in Ireland and around the world of all-time. As such he rightfully has a place in our museum, with candid photos and memorabilia of Rory along with all the greats of Irish Rock N’ Roll throughout our museum.

Your Guide to our Tour Guides: Dave

Your Guide to our Tour Guides: Dave

  This is the first installment in a series of interviews we’ll be conducting with each tour guide. We pride ourselves on our excellent staff, and we’d love you to get to know a bit more about them. We recently sat down with our tour guide, tech and all round nice guy Dave to discuss favourite bands, whiskey and the music industry. Here’s what he had to say.     Name some of your favourite Irish musicians. My favourite musician would definitely be Phil Lynott. He’d be kind of a lot of people’s favourite I’d presume. Apart from Phil, it would be Rory Gallagher, another great musician, Gary Moore, who played with Thin Lizzy for a number of years. Bands like Stiff Little Fingers and The Undertones would be my sort of style. Why did you become a tour guide at the museum? Well I’ve been tour-guiding for about four or five years now in different aspects of tourism, like Georgian history. I was working in the Whiskey Museum, I was working at a Viking attraction, but personally my main interest is music, so to be able to combine both together was kind of perfect. What do you like most about working in the museum? Working in the museum, every day is different. You’re meeting different people, sharing your stories, but also people are sharing their stories with you. Their time, their experiences, seeing bands like Thin Lizzy or U2 in their younger days. What is your favourite piece of memorabilia from the museum? Personally, Phil’s bass guitar. I’m a huge Phil Lynott fan and Thin Lizzy fan. It’s definitely my favourite...
