Festival Céilí

Venue: St. Stephen's Green, Dublin 2

Get your dancing shoes on and come along to the Festival Céilí, an outdoor celebration of traditional Irish dancing.  Learn the steps, enjoy live traditional music and soak up the atmosphere on the streets of Dublin!

Renowned ceilí caller Jerry O’Reilly will lead you through céilí classics, such as The Walls of Limerick and Shoe the Donkey, demonstrated by céilí veterans, the Brooks Academy dancers. The Matt Cunningham Band will accompany -  Matt is a household name in the Irish music world, one of the most popular performers within the set & céilí dancing genre and a pioneer where his recordings for dancers are concerned.

Special guests Ciarán Ó Maoinigh on fiddle, and Caitlín Nic Gabhann on concertina, are award-winning musicians in their own right. Together, they make an explosive duo, full of spirit, soul and life.
But it’s you who really makes it special, so join our host and champion Irish dancer Dearbhla Lennon, as well as a few thousand friends, for a céilí to remember.

This fun-filled afternoon of céilí music and non-stop dancing is not to be missed - no experience required!

Cuir snas ar do bhróga damhsa agus tar ag rince amuigh faoin spéir ag Céilí na Féile.

Beidh banna cheoil Matt Cunningham, atá ag céiliúradh 50 bliain ar an bhfód, ag déanamh tionlacan, chomh maith le Ciarán Ó Maoinigh & Caitlín Nic Gabhann!
