“Had a great time!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Overall a very fun experience. The music, singing, and dancing were truly superb. The set and costumes were pretty sad, but once you get past that ... well it's a little hard to get past that honestly. For 25Euro a head, I would think they would be able to update things a bit. That being said, I really enjoyed the music and the dancing. I felt like I got an introduction to the Granuaile story and it really piqued my interest in her. If you're in Westport I highly recommend checking out this show (not much else happening in Westport anyway from what I saw)

“Oíche den scoth”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The best night of entertainment ever. I can't remember an event that I enjoyed more from start to finish, AGUS anó Piaras é fhéin - any good production needs to have a strong beginning, middle and end Pierse and crew surely administered this show so proficiently and entertainingly throughout. Gach rath oraibh!

“What a Spectacular Show!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

What a fabulous "Legend of Grainne Mhaol" show we saw tonight at the Westport Hotel stage! The cast was pure magnificence and most outstanding. We felt lucky to have gotten tickets.

The show included an array of exceptional performers. We were mesmerized by the extremely talented and award-winning musicians in this show, its top-notch singers, and its exquisite Irish traditional dancers. They stole our hearts! We've been to Irish dancing and music shows in Dublin, Galway and Killarney. This was one of the best we have ever seen. We will see this show again! Carl & Mildred
