Irish dance show in Dublin


My partner and I are coming to Dublin for Easter and we would like to watch a traditional Irish dance show. We have already checked that 'Riverdance' is in Canada in April but we are wondering if anyone could recommend some less famous but also good show.

Thanks a lot!

Not on the scale of Riverdance, but the Arlington Hotel on Bachelor's Walk have a nightly show

Another option for you...


Dinner, dancing and music. It looks to be out of the city center, but they offer free coach transportation that picks up in several locations.

I actually did it on the 18th of March, this is not that good. Unfortunately there is not much choice, i guess Burlington is doing something similar and ''maybe'' Johnni Foxy's. But if you really want to see it go ahead with Arlington. Totally not as good as Riverdance short and not many dancers.

Johnnie Foxes, the highest pub in Ireland, though a bit outside Dublin has a dinner and show, called the Hooley Night, book in advance it is very popular. Check out the website, I think they arrange a transfer from the city. The pub itself is a museum piece, well worth a visit.


Also c;loser to town s Taylor's Three Rocks, not sure what the quality of the entertainment is like as I've never been to it.


Riverdance will be in Dublin but not until the end of June for their annual Summer run.

We are also going to be in Dublin for Easter week. I found 2 places that have a music and dance show. The Merry Plough Men Pub and The Landsdown Hotel (Irish House Party). Both are dinner shows but the Lansdwon lets you buy tickets only for he show.
