If you are expecting lots of dancing then please be aware that you are only taught 3 dances and you need to wait when the other groups do their dances. So in a 2 hour "dance" event, you are only on the dance floor for around 15-20 minutes. There were too many people attending. They should limit the numbers so... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Firstly I would like to say that it clearly states on our website that we teach 3 Irish Dances. This is what we have offered since the event was first created 7 years ago. Sometimes we like to divide the group in to smaller groups at the start to ensure... More

We went as a 3-generation family group on a Saturday afternoon. The youngest was 5, the oldest, 82. We were with a few hen parties and everyone had a great laugh. The music and dancing was very good and everyone enjoyed themselves, including the guys. It's quite warm, so dress in layers! Well done to all for a great show.

I booked this experience as part of my sister's hen weekend and it was AMAZING! There were more groups there than we had anticipated but we were all involved (an area at a time) and learnt some of the basic moves very quickly. We had a great time and a great laugh too. We were all buzzing by the end... More

We (IAESTE Ireland) are a cultural exchange program for technical students in 3rd level education, each year we run a cultural program for our incoming students and Irish Dance Party is one of the highlights of our Dublin weekend....

A great way to spend 2 hours and burn a shed load of calories through dancing and laughing!! I can highly recommend the Irish dance party. Don't wear flip flops though - shoes which are securely fastened to feet are the way forward!!!
