Event Dates


Vibrant Irish dance performances every Friday and Saturday year-round by delightful Irish dancers ranging in age from 10 to 18. Each performance is approximately 20 minutes long and consists of soft and hard shoe sets.

Based upon the Irish peasant dress worn two hundred years ago, each dancers' colorful costume features a pleated skirt embroidered with interlocking and continuous lines of Celtic designs.

As the dancers move from the soft shoe portion of the show to rhythmic hard shoe dancing, you'll find yourself clapping along and stomping your feet to the music.

After the dancers have completed their routines, the live entertainment continues. Each Friday and Saturday night year-round, the Pub rings with excitement as talented musicians take the stage.

Time: One 20 minute set between 6:30-7:30 pm
