It combines the talent of some of the country’s leading Irish Dancers with over 20 World Champion Dance Titles and some of Kerry’s finest Musicians to showcase the origins of Irish music and dance. Attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world each year, the award-winning Show features some of Ireland's best loved songs like Raglan Road and Siúil a Rún whilst showcasing the intricacy and fluidity of traditional Irish dance with old favourites like the brush dance, slip jigs, the Kerry Polka and many more.
