“Work conference”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Our colleagues from Canada were over for a work conference and I organised the Irish Dance Party as part of our 'Irish Festivities' for a Wed afternoon! There was about 22 of us ... all ages ..... and everyone had such a great time, we danced and laughed for the full 2 hours. Daniel sang a varied mix of Irish songs while the Irish Dancing Instructor showed us 3 great dances. Our canadian colleagues had the best time ever and are still raving about it! I would definitelty recommned to all my friends :-)

I wasnt sure how everyone was going to take it, but we had a absolute brilliant time, it was really entertaining and so much fun, everyone commented what a brill time they had even tho they wasnt sure about it before we got there! I definately recommend this as a bit of fun and entertainment while visiting Dublin.

“Great for a hen do!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

I recently visited Dublin for a hen do and on the Saturday afternoon we had organised the dance party at one of the pubs in central Dublin, the guitarist/entertainer was great at the Irish songs and organising the group whilst the Irish dancer had great moves, great instruction on how to learn some of them and a really good attitude. We drunk and danced and were really merry! Would highly recommend for a hen do activity.

“Irish Dance Party”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

As part of a hen party, the bridesmaids had organized for us to attend the Irish Dance Party- unknown to all us girls. Daniel the singer sang the known (and unknown) Irish songs and then we had a dancing session... we were joined by a hen party from England and two ladies from Spain so everyone had a partner to dance with. The dancing was a lot of fun (but if you do go, make sure you ware appropriate shoes... and your hair up!) The singing and the dancing was a blast, would not hesitate going back (at least I would know what to expect!)

“hilarious hen day activity!!!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We did this for my friends hen night, because so many of the day time activities we looked at were sooo expensive and we thought this would be a cheap and funny way to spend a couple of hours...little did we know the hilarity that we were in for!!!!!!

As a bunch of Irish girls we all had vague recollections of the 1-2-3 from our childhoods but that was about the extent of it, so after a quick beer for a bit of dutch courage we threw ourselves into it with gusto...there was a live singer/fiddle player who was amazing and the dance teacher was a great laugh, he was very patient with our utter incompetence and even managed to get us to get through the complete dances in time to the music (more or less!!)

I would highly recommend this for Irish people too...it's not just for the tourists...and it worked perfectly for the hen day.

Couple of words of warning, it's more energetic than you might imagine...think the funniest fitness class you've ever been...and secondly unless you're Jean Butler...you're calves will be sore the following day, so not to be done on the eve of a trek up the Wicklow mountains!!!!!!!!!!!!!
