Performed by former world Irish dance champions and featuring dancers from the West End’s Lord of the Dance and Riverdance, “A Taste of Ireland” transports the audience through the story of Ireland’s tumultuous history, delivered with a pint of Irish wit. Watch world-class performers blend melodic folk mash-ups, live jaw-dropping acapella tap battles and heartwarming storytelling.

Featuring revamped classics of “Danny Boy,” “Tell Me Ma,” “Wild Rover” and many more well-known songs, the show’s reimagined contemporary score blossoms alongside the brash Irish charm of the live dance cast. “A Taste of Ireland” merges cultural traditions, modern flair and craic galore to deliver a performance that has been leaving audiences across the globe jigging on their feet for the last decade.

With over 150 five-star Facebook reviews, “A Taste of Ireland” is exactly what it promises: a taste of everything you love about Ireland with a generous helping of more! “A Taste of Ireland” is a show with 100% live singing and dancing that bridges the gap between storytelling, modern Irish dance, tap and contemporary dance to tell a historic story, live on stage.

With a strictly limited USA run, see “A Taste of Ireland” this May for limited performances before it returns to the UK, Australia and New Zealand this summer.

“Witness the birth of a nation told through rhythm and beat, with the cry of the Vikings as they were brought to defeat, the rise and fall of the rebellion the show tells the tale, trapped were the Irish, watch them dance from the jail. For the nation fought free from Dundalk to Tralee, they sing and they dance through the night full of glee. For Ireland, there was, not a nation quite like her, hold on to your seat, feel Ireland’s passion and fire.”
