Wonderful show, fantastic way to start our visit to the 2023 Fringe. Amazing music and dance that gets everyone going. Glorious Irish music performed by talented musicians and gives the superb dancers the backing they need for their incredibly energetic Irish dancing. Wow! What a great show. Highly Recommended fun.

This was just sensational. A night of pure joy . Only wish it lasted an hour longer . Narrated by Michael Redmond who played the boring priest in father ted. This was nothing near boring though....It was riverdance on drugs, with great dancing and a band who were out of this world. A special highlight was the accapella melody near the end that sent goosebumps up me feckin spine. This show deserves to go on and be huge

I loved this show. I went twice with my wife and I would like to know the name of the song of the bagpiper he played alone. Highly recommend it.

***** 5 stars! I had a smile on my face the whole way through this performance - what talent! The dancing is spectacular, but truly the band stole the show for me. That rendition of The Parting Glass... spellbounding!
