Great activity! The dancers were amazing and very attractive. Precision dancing. Introductory group lessons were fun and not too difficult. A suggestion--If each group formed two unequal lines to start, I think it might help to form the double circle-maybe. 🙂 Two dancers would lead the lines into the desired formation. The guitarist-singer was great as well, just not as pretty! Aye!

We really enjoyed everything about the performers: the musician and the 3 female dancers/instructors. They were all very professional and LOADS of FUN!Will recommend the dance party, BUT, will caution anybody about the ASTRONOMICALLY HIGH PRICES for the drinks.....would have appreciated a more moderate price as in the other local pubs.

It was an amazing experience! The exceptionally talented performers entertained us with traditional Irish music and dance. And they even took the time to teach us some Irish dances, which was an absolute fun. My friends and I were visiting Ireland for the first time, and it was a perfect decision to watch traditional Irish performances in a historic building!

This was a wonderful experience. My wife and I attended last night. It was very interactive, too. Great acoustic music to start then into the Irish dancing and performances. The host and dancers did a great job at involving everyone. They are professionals. The party was fun and I've already been telling friends about it!
