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!!!

If you want a real taste of Dublin get involved with The Irish Dance Party. This was a fantastic afternoon out right in the heart of Dublin. A great dancer and supporting band made the experience all the more enjoyable! Remember take some water because Irish dancing is like a work out!! I would definitely add this to the list... More

If you are looking for typical Irish dancing and music, this is a great workshop to attend. Furthermore a great work-out. The dance teacher used to take part in a Riverdance show and showed her amazing skills. It is fun to take part in the workshop, both as a group or a couple.

What a great workout! Such a good time. There were three hen parties along with my cousin and I. It was a lot of fun. The dancers were great and the music was wonderful. Only gripes: it was super hot in the venue (that wasn't controllable by the people putting on the dance party) and to pay at the end... More

I arranged this for an hen weekend of 23. Every single one of us commented on how good this afternoon was. The singer/musician and the dancers was brill and we was made to feel very welcome. It is well worth the money for 2 hours, a good laugh and lots of fun. I would reccomend this to anyone!

My best friend and I recently visited Dublin and had booked this in advance for our first afternoon. We were greeted in a downstairs bar area of the hotel by a miserable looking "host" - this put us off slightly. Once everybody in (including a hen party) the musician began making conversation to set the mood and make us feel... More

The 2 hours we spent with the team of the Irish Dance Party just after arriving in Dublin were just... GREAT. We learned a lot about irish music, instruments and history and laughed at least as much as we danced! We were amazed by the talent of Ruth, who taught us some steps of the irish dancing with lots of... More
