An interesting production that in my opinion falls far short of what the name suggests. Grainne Mhaol the Pirate Sea Queen whose remains are interred (allegedly) on Clare Island whilst not a swash buckling Pirate was powerful in so far as her domain allowed her. The music and dance routines whilst above average are not memorable. That said the show fills an entertainment gap.

We were invited to a play about the grand old dame of pirates but there was no play. The music was great and the young dancers did well but the hour of listening to very old stories told by the most boring man was too much for us. Then there was another 45 minutes of listening to a young guitar player peddling her wares. There was a lot of movement in the audience as they came and went for drinks and a smoke making me think that they too were a little weary with the evenings performance.

Had a wonderful evening of top music, dancing and singing in a intimate, cosy theatre that enabled great interaction for the audience. The skills on display were breathtaking, especially the lead dancers.
The show had the feeling of a smaller 'Riverdance' with the bonus of first class singers and musicians. Deserves to go on tour and to be seen by a wider audience. The UK and America would love it
Finally it was so nice and appreciated that the cast came straight to the foyer to meet the audience after the show. No inflated egos here.

Caught this on a short trip to Westport. Wasn't disappointed, the dances brilliant, particularly the 2 leads and their younger selves. The musicians too class, could listen to them all evening and the singers were just brilliant. Just one thing, found the audio on the narration a bit hard to hear at times.

Fantastic dancing, brilliant musicians. A thoroughly entertaining evening designed to meet all requirements for Irish music and dancing. Don't expect to get a detailed historical account of the Pirate Queen but would highly recommend.

I have gone to this show EVERY year since it first started and I ALWAYS enjoy it. It's a wonderful example of top class Irish music, song and dance - with a local flavour.
Liam Tighe's dancing in this year's show is breath-taking - the agility, energy and precision in his steps are a sight to behold. In fact, his sharp footwork could come in handy for the Mayo team, in the next month or so ......!!!
