OMG what a show, it was fantastic, I'm actually lost for words. Brilliant well done to every performer. If I visit Killarney again you'll find me in the front row.

We enjoyed this show after dinner during our stay in Killarney. The entertainers were young and enthusiastic, resulting in an entertaining evening. We particularly enjoyed the harpist, and also appreciated the energetic Irish dancers. The music was lively and included drums, fiddle, flute and keyboard....More

The music, the dance and the lights was just perfect, I felt like I am in show like game of thrones . And the one who played on the harp, she just melt my heart with her play. I must see it again.

The show was good. Musicians, dancers and singer were all very good. The venue however is terrible - a small hotel banquet room with terrible lighting and stage with low ceiling. Unless you’re in the first 3 rows, it is impossible to see dancers’ feet....More

Dancers were fun and lively. Corner Moriarty fingers just flew on 'the box'. Giselle O'Meara has an angelic voice. Great entertainment for the price.

This is one awesome show! Tour director recommended this show and it has been a highlight of our tour so far. These young people have so much talent and showmanship. Venue is small and very close.

What a great show! High energy and awesome talent. Thoroughly enjoyable. We came with a tour group and although the room was packed we all could see the stage.
