Hibernacle, a bygone word for a Winter Retreat, launches this December bringing together an array of incredible artists on a Collaborative Pilgrimage to Doolin on Ireland’s West coast from December 14th to 20th. 

Lisa Hannigan, Æ MAK, Saint Sister, Paul Noonan (Bell X1) and Brian Mac Glionn (Ye Vagabonds) are just some of the many cross-genre artists hitting the road to make this pilgrimage. 

The weekends with 4 live-streamed events including multiple performances showcasing collaborations and content from the week and giving the public a unique window into this musical adventure.

What is Hibernacle? It is a word for a winter retreat, a protective covering or space. 

In a year when we all have been isolated from each other and collaborating, connecting, sharing songs and ideas has been difficult for artists, Hibernacle will set up in Doolin in bright, airy and spacious spaces, allowing artists to connect in a socially distant setting to create together safely and finish 2020 with fresh inspiration. 

Doolin is the traditional music capital of Ireland and aside from hosting many music festivals, sits on the edge of Ireland’s West Coast providing the most inspirational surrounds. 

Join in from the comfort of your own Hibernacle and seek musical solace in this shelter for creativity.
