I went with a French friend to the Pulses of Tradition expecting to be bored but I was very plesently surprised. The musicians and dancers were very professional and engaged the audience. The combination of poetry, music, dance and video images worked very well, a very enjoyable evening.

An unbelievable show, even for an Irish person. Not at all "hyped up" for tuorists. WARNING: You will crave a pint of Guinness during & after this show!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the show. My teenage daughter clogs and was fascinated by the traditional Irish dancers. The music and occasional humor was just as good. I hope to see the show again if/when I make another trip to Ireland.

My friends and I attended Pulses of Tradition and it was a lovely evening. It is hard to imagine how such a small troupe, just 6 musicians and 4 dancers can produce such great music and dance. I have seen both Riverdance and Lord of the Rings many times. Of course, it is not a fair comparison of a local... More
