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!
Duration: 1-2 hours

    Sooooo great experience!
    It's a great experience in Cork, whether you're just passing through or are a regular student, whether you're an English speaker or not, there's a place for everyone! Each lesson with Ceili by the Lee is a real moment of laughter and great results! Damian is charismatic and gifted at getting everyone involved in a great state of mind! Well done to him!

    What a memorable experience with Irish music, dance, and lots of laughter!
    This was such a fun experience! Instructor was so kind and welcoming, and showed us through all the steps. You then practice these with traditional Irish music so it is not long before you get into the Irish spirit! Next time we are in Cork we will DEFINITELY return! It's a great place to meet new people too, and create very special memories that you will cherish forever. We shared some good laughs too, and it is so rewarding once you practice the dance as a group towards the end. GREAT FUN! Can't recommend this enough!!

    So much fun at Céilí by the Lee. Teacher was excellent. He taught us 2 great dances, joking along the way. Everyone smiling, chatting, spinning & having the craic. Will definitely go again. ☘️

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.
