Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely loved this experience. I booked it for a Hen Do and we had so much fun. Lovely atmosphere, great environment, the perfect activity to do for a group of any size. If you're heading to Dublin, it is always going to be busy in pubs and bars around Temple Bar but with this activity you are guaranteed a table and a sit down. The whole experience is for 2 hours but you're not dancing the entire time, so anyone with mobility problems or people scared to be on their feet for a long period of time would be fine doing this. There was a mix of entertainment: authentic, acoustic Irish music, professional Irish Dancers and OF COURSE your own time to learn some Irish Dancing in groups as well. A great activity no matter what size the group is AND the payment is taken as a per person so it doesn't matter if your group size decreases after booking because they amend it to whoever turns up.

I brought a group of university students to the Irish Dance Party and they had a blast. We all enjoyed just listening to the live music and were mesmerized by the incredible dancing of the performers. The instructions went very quickly, but the students were able to fake it until they made it, and by the end they felt pretty confident. It was their favorite experience of our four days in Dublin.

So much fun! Went as part of a hen do. The music was so good and the dancers were incredible! The group dances they taught us were so much fun, we were just laughing and smiling the whole time. The drinks were really good as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Dublin!

The Irish Dance Party was fun. The music was good, especially the traditional trad music played on the fiddle! The dancers were also clearly very talented (but only danced for maybe six minutes in total).

Now the bad: there were far, far too many people booked for this event. The sheer mass of people there really detracted from the fun and enjoyment. There must have been at least 60 people trying to cram onto a dance floor in two groups of 30! In fact, there were so many people there we did not even get the three dances as promised by the website. That was very disappointing. This event could be outstanding with a capped attendance, but, unfortunately, was average at best.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review us. We are delighted you enjoyed our live music and our amazing dancers. I am sorry to hear you felt the dances were too short. We are currently busy rehearsing exciting new Dance routines and we look forward to performing them very soon! I looked back over the videos of the day and I saw that the dances were not being taught in too circles like they should have been. There were too many people in one for me with the result the dance sets were cluttered. I have address this issue with the dancers in question.

Not a bad experience, but unfortunately we had to leave early:(. We were sat in a corner for the short performance part, which was a bummer. I’m sure it was because we were the only party of 2 there. This particular event seems best suited for bachelorette parties (“hen parties). The Irish dancers sat upstairs doing their thing until they were called down to perform. We were there for 45 minutes and they danced once then they called folks out on the floor to learn how to dance. I expected more performing from them. Bummer. If you’d like more of a performance, this is not the function for you. It wasn't bad - the singer (Daniel?) was pretty good but again, I wanted more dancing.

This was such a fun, relaxed way to enjoy some Irish music and dancing. We brought our young kids, 2 and 4, and they had a BLAST. A special shout out to one of the dancers, Rachel, who went above and beyond to make sure my 4 year old daughter had a wonderful time. Rachel held my daughter’s hand while she was dancing and guided her through the moves. The dancers were great, the music was great, the venue was great. I cannot recommend this enough!!

Booked this event as s surprise for my daughter's hen do. She had no idea what to expect and as soon as the pros started dancing her face lit up - as did ours! The whole event was fantastic - every member of our party loved it - all of a varied age and ability 😉. The MC was amazing from the onset getting us in the Irish spirit 🇮🇪🍀. Our dance lessons were fab and easy to learn and follow with the help of the two amazing professionals. Just brilliant 🙌.

I booked the Irish Dance Party for my friend's hen and it was so much fun. The Merchant's Arch was a beautiful, ideal location and the musician and dancers were brilliant. It was so much fun and you won't stop laughing throughout!

When I first walked in did not know what to expect and being a very below average dancer was erm concerning. However the music was great and everyone joined in we were a hen party and it was great to all do something together and laugh at each other. The 3 dancers were amazing and Daniel was excellent with music and getting people involved. I was however as imagined useless but joined in and not made to feel embarrassed as everyone was laughing and joking.brillant little activity. Maybe include some alcohol shots to improve the dancing haha
