Owner description: The Irish Dance Party is one of Dublin’s best loved experiences where you get to see and hear top class live Irish music and dancing by award winning performers. Not only that, but true to the Irish spirit, everybody gets to give the dancing a go themselves. It is a 2 hour event. Seated at your own reserved table between dances, there is ample time to take in the atmosphere of it all in a beautiful traditional Irish pub setting with the option of a creamy pint of Guinness. Your charismatic and talented Irish music and dance entertainers will see to it that there is never a dull moment. It doesn't get any more Irish than that!

We wanted to try this activity as Irish dancing and music is such part of the local culture.
We were surronded by groups of girls. The musician was absolutely incredible and talented. Showed us traditional Irish instruments and played traditional songs.

The dancing part was hosted by a professional Irish dancer who worked for Riverdance. She was absolutely incredible and good at it. She made a few really impressive demos. The dancing part was a good laugh and fun.

Only downside, the room which looked a bit like a basement and there were staff from the above bar passing through as the activity went on.

We went as a group of girls for St Patricks weekend. Music was excellent and everyone was singing along to traditional Irish music, as well as a mix up of modern songs. The musician was amazingly talented and we could have listened to him all day! The dancing was such a laugh and the dancers were incredible to watch as well as being friendly and funny when teaching us! Overall we had a great time here and would strongly recommend anyone visiting Dublin to go.

My friend and I took our three girls (ages 5, 5 and 4) to Dublin for a girls' weekend. We wen to the Irish Dance party with them and had a great time. Of course the girls mainly skipped their steps, but they still had a blast. The live musicians (Patty and Fred) interacted with the whole audience, and constantly got the girls involved in the music. Of course by the end, the girls were on stage with them dancing and drumming and singing.

So, you learn 3 Irish dances - and all are very fun! The teacher is a professional Irish dancer and she performs a couple of dances for the group as well. And it all is accompanied by live music.

There was only one guy in the class - there with his girlfriend. I'm pretty sure our husbands would have had fun with us too, but it was mainly women.

We would definitely do this again, and we would recommend it to everyone!

We booked the dance session as an activity to do during our stay in Dublin as part of a Hen Weekend. What a truly fantastic experience. The dancing & singing was brilliant. These guys are so patient and really lived up to every expectation, in fact exceeded them. Would definitely recommend you try this while in Dublin.

I visited Dublin with a large group of students and our last night was spent listening to traditional Irish music and watching a superb dancer. The students also got to learn some steps and take part in Irish dancing. It was loved by all.
