“An Enjoyable Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Fabulous musicians and it is great to see the traditional arts of Ireland being kept alive. James Kilbane has a fabulous voice and a special mention must go to the banjo player.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

End of season may have been the reason for so-so show. If you like musicals this may be ok, but was disappointed that we had to read the program to follow the story (tough in the dark).

“The Best In The West!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely superb performances from every person in this brilliant show! A true experience of Irish music, song and dance. Without any doubt, this was the highlight of my annual visit to the Emerald Isle and the best show I've seen upon doing so! Don't miss any opportunity to see this outstanding concert :-)
