Avoid waiting in long lines at the Book of Kells—one of the most important highlights of Irish heritage dating back to the ninth century—on this early-access tour. Meet at the easy-to-find Trinity College in central Dublin, and set off listening to the elaborate history from a guide who unlocks secret mysteries of the book. End your tour at Dublin Castle where your guide dives even deeper into Irish culture and heritage.

Jig offers a show called, "Hop" in which you see a short film on folks impressions and knowledge of Irish dancing, you see a short demo by a few dancers, and then you give it a go yourself! The instructors were excellent, and it was totally fun to try dancing for ourselves. If nothing else, you completely appreciate just how difficult and aerobic the dancing is when you see it elsewhere! The venue is a bit tricky to find, located upstairs in a larger mall-like place with few signs. Definitely a highlight of our visit.

A great way to finish some fantastic days in Dublin. It lasts one hour and you can feel up close how talented and dedicated the 4 dancers are. Very informative about the history of Irish dance, about how it developed and changed through the years, becoming that amazing and wonderful steps that fascinated an entire world since the River Dance. The music was absolutely new for me, very traditional but different from the most known songs. It's an enlightening experience you shouldn't miss.

The evening show is both entertaining and enlightening. It's a chance to see the development of Irish dancing over the past 100 years. However, the real attraction for anyone looking to embrace Ireland on their vacation is the afternoon Hop Up show. Sue and Megan are wonderful teachers. Getting up on stage and spending an hour learning some of the basic steps gives one a great appreciation for both the art and athleticism of the dance. It's located in the Powerscourt Centre, so it's easy to find and shopping awaits either before of after the Hop Up show.

Absolutely loved this show. It's in a small theatre in a unique location off of Graffton Street. As the venue is small you can really see the dancers feet and appreciate how hard Irish Dancing is. The dancers were great and really engaging and the staff were friendly. The show lasts about an hour and runs through the various types of dance from traditional to modern. They also have a small museum on site which was interesting. Our five year old daughter also loved it. I found this show advertised on TripAdvisor and would highly recommend it. It is a pity it is not advertised more as it deserves to be.

This was a nice little show. Only an hour long and the 4 dancers were really good. Lots of information before the show started and as it was going on. Worth the visit.
