The O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat is the premier event in the lineup of educational camps and concerts organized by the Traditional Irish Music Education Society (TIMES).
We convene every year for three days of classes, sessions, concerts, dances, and camaraderie. The O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat is an educational event where you can immerse yourself in traditional Irish music with a community of motivated students and gifted teachers.
Named in honor of Jim O’Flaherty, a musician who immigrated from Ireland to North Texas spreading the Irish music tradition through his family, friends and community, the O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat continues with the commitment to helping others learn, enjoy, and grow in this rich tradition.

Each year we invite internationally respected musicians from within the Irish music tradition to perform and teach our classes. We also engage a core group of local and area-wide volunteers and staff who are dedicated to making the retreat experience memorable for our participants. The O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat is a community of Irish music lovers who come together to foster a tradition that so many hold close to their hearts.
