“Oíche den scoth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The best night of entertainment ever. I can't remember an event that I enjoyed more from start to finish, AGUS anó Piaras é fhéin - any good production needs to have a strong beginning, middle and end Pierse and crew surely administered this show so proficiently and entertainingly throughout. Gach rath oraibh!

“What a Spectacular Show!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

What a fabulous "Legend of Grainne Mhaol" show we saw tonight at the Westport Hotel stage! The cast was pure magnificence and most outstanding. We felt lucky to have gotten tickets.

The show included an array of exceptional performers. We were mesmerized by the extremely talented and award-winning musicians in this show, its top-notch singers, and its exquisite Irish traditional dancers. They stole our hearts! We've been to Irish dancing and music shows in Dublin, Galway and Killarney. This was one of the best we have ever seen. We will see this show again! Carl & Mildred

“A must see if you are in Westport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

I was staying with my wife in the Hotel Westport for a few days last week. We say the ad for the show in the hotel. As we were there we thought we would go and see it. As we are Irish we expected to see the usual tourist type irish show. What a surprise we got when the show was one of the most entertaining shows we have ever seen .The 3 singers were great, the Shan-nos dancers were in a class of their own . The musicians were excellent,and they all did solos. And the compaire played well off the audience. All in all a great show not to be missed.

“Unbelievable show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went to the Grainne Mhaol show in Westport last week and I have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole show from start to finish was extremely well put together and the talent on stage is priceless. Great singing, dancing and music. Lovely fella running the whole production who also acts as MC for the show. Overall a wonderful night out in a fantastic part of Ireland.
