“Fabulous Show”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

If you are going to be in Ireland, go to Westport and see this show, it's fabulous!! There is not much in the way of story or scenery, but the wonderful musicians, especially Cora Smyth and James Kilbane, and the skilled dancers will keep you entertained for two hours. A great night of Irish music and dance, don't miss it!!
