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.

During our all too brief stay in Dublin, we weren't planning on going to Jig, the story of Irish Dance museum and show. However, we thought it would make a nice change from wandering the streets and taking endless -irresistible- pictures of the lovely buildings...More
