Locate Us

Judique is located along Route 19 (The Ceilidh Trail), on the West coast of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada.

From Halifax International Airport, Nova Scotia:

Follow the Trans Canada (Highway 104) to the Canso Causeway. Once across the Causeway and over the swing bridge, you will climb a short hill to a rotary. Look for signs for Route 19 and Inverness (the first left turn in the rotary). You will then be on the Ceilidh Trail (Rte.19) and reach Judique in about 20 minutes (17 miles/30 km). The Celtic Music Interpretive Centre is easy to find — it will be on your left, immediately following Wayne’s Variety Convenience Store, across from St. Andrew’s Church and next to the Judique Community Centre.

Parking is shared with the Judique Community Centre next door. There is ample parking available for tour buses as well.
