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! Neither aptitude nor experience is required, as our MC is renowned for turning two left feet into a matching pair. Thursdays at 19:30 in Crane Lane on Phoenix Street Admission €5 Check FB for more info!

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.

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

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!
