Had a wonderful evening of top music, dancing and singing in a intimate, cosy theatre that enabled great interaction for the audience. The skills on display were breathtaking, especially the lead dancers. The show had the feeling of a smaller 'Riverdance' with the bonus of...More

Fantastic dancing, brilliant musicians. A thoroughly entertaining evening designed to meet all requirements for Irish music and dancing. Don't expect to get a detailed historical account of the Pirate Queen but would highly recommend.
