So delighted to have seen the show last Wednesday. A real showcase of local, yet world-class talent. Fantastic production which really captures the spirit of the west with beautiful music, dance and story telling. Monica Brennan's voice is spine tingling as is "Grainne's" version of the water is wide. My seven year old loved it too and is already asking... More

Enthralling and engaging. Amazing dance, singing and music with a great story, Highly recommended. The combination of strong narrative and a compelling story makes this a great stage show. Comparable to a London West-End show.

I recently attended this show with my family for the midweek show. It was lovely to get away from the hassle and bustle of a busy holiday schedule. The show is perfect for all ages and takes you through the history of Grace O Malley through irish song and dance. Wonderful value and a wonderful way to spend an evening.... More

As everyone else has said, a great evening of music, dance and storytelling. What I'd like to add is that its in a really nice small theater where every seat is good. I'm from the US and you'd get tickets far from the stage at this price. We were in the 10th row. A really fun evening. If you like... More
