About
Ceili by the Lee is a traditional Irish social gathering. It's hard to be all things to all people, but we try our best: whether you want to learn to dance in the old Irish style, get fit, make new friends, or simply have the craic we have you covered! Combining the hectic energy of a party in an ocean liner steerage with the nostalgia of a Gaeltacht days fado, this is an activity that won't disappoint! Come along from 8, and the MC will show how they used to do in old Ireland. Neither aptitude nor experience is required, as the Messrs O'Toole are renowned for turning two left feet into a matching pair. Mondays at 19:30 in Crane Lane on Phoenix Street Admission €5 Check FB for more info!

So much fun
Sep 2019
really fun night out, no matter if you have irish dance experience or not! They will talk you though the steps, and even if you dont get it, all the others will just drag you along, no problem. You can have a drink in between the breaks and after the dancing you could grab a bite to eat in the nearby pub

Great fun!

A great experience the few times I went! Each week starts with the basic steps, which is great for people like me that need a lot of practice. But it's never boring because of the enthusiasm of the instructor and the different dances every week.

I took a group of students to Ceili By The Lee as welcome activity to their new home in Cork. We all had a great time learning the dances that were patiently broken down for us step by step. No experience with Irish or group dancing necessary. Would recommend to anyone looking for something to do on a Monday evening in Cork. I would definitely return!

My girlfriend and I were in Cork for three days and managed to fit Ceili by the Lee into our busy schedule and we were really glad that we did. The class was led by a really knowledgeable and charismatic instructor that made the three (rather challenging) dances accessible for all. The venue is excellent, with a bar with plenty of local beers, stouts and IPAs to provide all the Dutch courage you could possibly want/ need.

Great evening activity whilst in Cork, highly recommended!

Easy enough to learn and the best atmosphere. A perfect way to have lots of fun, laugh, doing physical exercise, meet new people and learn about irish culture for just 5 euros. If you go to Cork you can´t miss this experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!

Hen-Do!
Sep 2019
My girls arranged a surprise Irish dancing class for me while we were in Cork for my hen-do, and it was the perfect hen-do activity!! The afternoon was so much fun - the instructor was great, and made the whole thing light-hearted, while actually managing to teach 4 very giddy girls some steps!
The atmosphere was fab, and the theatre and its location were really cute and cosy. All in all, the experience was fantastic, and the perfect combination of authentic, uplifting, and fun!
PS: Being from Manchetser, we thoroughly enjoyed the 'Craic!!' :D
