If you really want to experience the culture of Ireland, how could you NOT attend the Irish Dance Party? You get a combination of listening to Irish music and then three short segments of learning to dance. There is no pressure, it is all pure fun. Highly recommended. Good for a group!

The group was made up mainly of hen parties/birthday parties but we just went as a group of three friends to learn some Irish dancing. The teachers, Ruth and Dylan, were out of this world, absolutely fantastic and it was great to see some performances from them and learn the dances in between. The steps themselves were easy to pick... More

What a hoot! We had a great afternoon listening to a brilliant multi-talented musician who also provided backing music to a really talented irish dancer who was very patient and a brilliant teacher to nine of us last Saturday afternoon. We all had a ball and especially enjoyed trying and achieving our dances whilst having enormous fun with our friends.... More

I booked this as a bit of fun for myself and my boyfriend. At €12 each for approx 2 hours I thought it was a good price. When we arrived it was just us 2 and 4 large groups (15-20 per a group) of women! As you can imagine there was no way my partner would feel comfortable joining in... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. We're delighted you enjoyed our musician and dancers. We're sorry that you're boyfriend felt uncomfortable. We certainly didn't mean to be misleading in what to expect. On our website the pictures clearly show groups of women at the event. Our weekly Facebook pictures also show groups of hen parties...
