- Celebrate with the Irish during a visit to Florence

January 10, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that when holidaying in Italy and staying at hotels in Florence, the sounds of an Irish jig could be one of the last things people expect to hear.

However, there is one event taking place that could get people dancing and celebrating as if they were in Dublin enjoying a pint of Guinness.

Irlanda in Festa comes to Florence's Saschall theatre and represents all things Irish with musical performances, dancing and lots of authentic goods for sale.

Next year, the annual event takes place from March 17th until the 21st and could be a great way to spend an evening, as the festivities take place between 19:30 and 00:30 local time.

What's on When notes that musical entertainment will come from the Cisalpipers, Whiskey Trail and Padraig Rynne, who is a concertina player from County Clare. He has previously been described by Brendan O'Regan as displaying an impressive "vigourous, yet subtle musicianship".

As well as browsing the range of crafts and trinkets on display, visitors can sample some traditional Irish colcannon and wash it all down with a premium, unpasteurised beer that is sure to get their night off to a good start.

To make the most of Irlanda in Festa, you should consider booking your hotel Firenze to avoid disappointment.
