Looking for the best traditional Irish music playlist on Spotify? We think we've found it. 

The end of the weekend means we all need a bit of cheering up and motivation to get us through another week, as the summer starts to draw to a close.

While we have both Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Drogheda, Co Louth, and Milwaukee Irish Fest kicking off this week with plenty of Irish traditional music to liven up the craic, we also have the perfect remedy for those who can't attend. 

Whether you have massive FOMO from not making the trek to an Irish music festival or concert this year, or you generally need a little pick me up, our deep Spotify listening habits have rooted out this top Irish traditional music playlist to get you through anything. 

Have a listen to this and we're sure you'll be plowing through everything on your to-do list today. It may not be the most traditional playlist we've ever come across but the little extras added to the traditional Irish instruments give it that spark we need to get going at the start of the week.
