Owner description: The Irish Dance Party is one of Dublin’s best loved experiences where you get to see and hear top class live Irish music and dancing by award winning performers. Not only that, but true to the Irish spirit, everybody gets to give the dancing a go themselves. It is a 2 hour event. Seated at your own reserved table between dances, there is ample time to take in the atmosphere of it all in a beautiful traditional Irish pub setting with the option of a creamy pint of Guinness. Your charismatic and talented Irish music and dance entertainers will see to it that there is never a dull moment. It doesn't get any more Irish than that!

Myself and 5 girl friends spent the afternoon learning how to Irish dance and listening to some very talented musicians and vocalists. Such a great way to experience some of the talent and culture of this amazing city.
Thanks guys! We really enjoyed ourselves:)
(any continued to practise our new moves as we explored some of Dublins finest nightlife!)

Well I very much disagree with the negative review. Visited the dance party for my future sis-in-law hen do on Saturday 14th April and what an experience. Definitely would go back. Both Daniel and Sue are excellent performers and all enjoyd the experience. Next time I visit Dublin I will most definitely be returning to this. The guys put so much effort in and obviously have such a passion for it - massive hats off to them! Thanks guys - a very memorable experience.

I can't believe this has had a bad review, it was absolutely brilliant.
We found the website for the dancing when we were planning my friends Hen Party and I am so glad we did. Firstly the Proffessional dancer was absolutely amazing and made the learning of the dance very easy. Daniel who is the musician was brilliant and kept us entertained the whole time, one of the Hens wants to now learn the uilleann pipes.

All in all a fantastic few hours which no one should miss.

Thanks Daniel for making it so much fun Xxx

A couple of friends and I were very up for learning some Irish dances and having just a good giggle but unfortunately this wasn't that great. The darkened room with bad disco balls underneath the bar of a hotel is not the best environment but that wouldn't have bothered us at all if the actual dancing had been ok, but the room was packed out with too many people so you couldn't actually really do any proper dancing - you just kind of bop along like you would at the end of a very drunk wedding.

The teacher is a very good dancer though and the musician was good - I don't want to give them a bad review at all! But unless you want to act like a drunk member of a tacky hen do party and not really dance much I wouldn't recommend it unfortunately.

First of all I would like to thank you very much for coming to the Irish Dance Party and for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the Dancer and the Musician. I would like to sincerely apologize for your negative experiences at our event. Unfortunately last week there was a mix up with the booking of the venue for the event and we ended up in the club in the basement of the hotel instead of the usual room upstairs which is bigger and more suitable and would have easily catered for the number of people there. We have taken steps to make sure this won't happen again in the future.

Best wishes and kind regards,
