What we're about


We are a group of people who love to dance, of all ages, young and not-so-young, singles and couples, dancers and newcomers. No experienced needed, this group is for anyone who wants to join in - everyone can learn to dance and we regularly prove this to people who started out saying they had "two left feet"! Click here to join our mailing list (


We meet up to learn Set Dancing (Irish folk dance, danced in groups of 8) and Sean Nós (Irish old style solo step dance). While the steps, movements and timing of the dances are explained and taught, we don't take it too seriously, the primary focus is on meeting up and enjoying the dance.


It's great fun and good exercise, it's a lovely way to socalise and a very enjoyable alcohol-free night out. The dances we learn are danced at festivals throughout Ireland, so, when festival time comes around, we are able to join in the festival fun, rather than watching from the sidelines.


It's very easy to join, no need to book, just turn up, the cost is a total of 10 euro per class, which includes both set dancing and Sean Nós. The group is very welcoming of new members - the most common reaction of people who come along for the first time is: "this is really great fun, I wish I'd found out about it years ago!"
