    Worth your attendance
    This show was phenomenal. I cannot believe the amazing show, abundance of talent and for such a low price. If you are in Derry or can catch this show elsewhere as it tours I strongly recommend the show, it's worth your time and money. The singer is from Celtic Women, fantastically talented musicians (group and solo performances) and always welcomed Irish step, some storytelling as well.

    A high energy experience worth going to.
    We bought tickets on a whim because we had nothing else planned for the evening and it was too rainy to stay outdoors. So glad we did. The show is great if you're into upbeat music and dancing. There are a few ballads interspersed, but mainly hand clapping, foot stomping Irish music. The band consists of fiddle, flute, squeeze box, drums and keyboards, all playing great. They truly seem to enjoy what they do. The dancers are synchronized perfectly. The crowd totally enjoyed it.

    "A must see on your itinerary to Ireland!"
    My husband & I had the opportunity to see this amazing live show with our tour group travelling throughout Ireland with Gate 1 Travel. Gaelic Roots is an innovative and exciting Irish show which brings together all that is great about the culture and tradtitions of Ireland. The show captured and highlighted the rich heritage that Ireland has in abundance. During the spectacular two-hour production, we experienced a journey from the colorful and historic roots of traditional Ireland to the modern next generation of Irish music, song and dance in this incrediblely moving and foot-tapping show. There is a short break to enjoy a drink or use the restrooms.

Had some family visiting from UK so we decided to attend this and weren’t disappointed, all of us loved it. Incredible talent showcase for young Irish dancers and musicians, excellent choreography and arrangements throughout, including male dancer who made his way up through the audience aisle, much to everyone’s delight.

Spent a week in Killarney, covering all the scenic and entertainment it has to offer. Gaelic roots certainly stood out a mile!! Coming from Castleblayney (Nashville of Ireland) and a keen eye on traditional Irish music I thought these musicians showed a very high standard, but also blended each ream member in perfect. Certainly recommend you go to Gaelic roots before you go to any other show, you won't be disappointed. I will be back.

This show was recommended by our tour guide. We paid at the door and had a fun time. The show had irish dancing, singing and instrumentals. They routinely engaged with the audience and we clapped all night long. If you are in Killarney and have a chance to see the show, please do. They also have a bar available for drinks.

What a delightful evening we all had. If you enjoy River Dance you will really enjoy the Gaelic Roots. Every group was as good as the next. What talent! The singer has such a lovely voice, the step dancers were amazing, the background musicians brought such fullness to the program. An evening of excitement, and a touch of the Irish that’s what the Gaelic Roots offer at a very reasonable price.

If you are in Killarney Sunday thru Friday don’t miss this great show. About 2 hours of singing, dancing and great music. There is a short intermission. Price is very reasonable and a good way to spend the evening. Show starts at 8:30.
