    Sooooo great experience!
    It's a great experience in Cork, whether you're just passing through or are a regular student, whether you're an English speaker or not, there's a place for everyone! Each lesson with Ceili by the Lee is a real moment of laughter and great results! Damian is charismatic and gifted at getting everyone involved in a great state of mind! Well done to him!

    What a memorable experience with Irish music, dance, and lots of laughter!
    This was such a fun experience! Instructor was so kind and welcoming, and showed us through all the steps. You then practice these with traditional Irish music so it is not long before you get into the Irish spirit! Next time we are in Cork we will DEFINITELY return! It's a great place to meet new people too, and create very special memories that you will cherish forever. We shared some good laughs too, and it is so rewarding once you practice the dance as a group towards the end. GREAT FUN! Can't recommend this enough!!

    If you're looking for a fun and vibrant way to spend your time while meeting new people, I highly recommend joining the Irish dance class. Not only is it a fantastic activity for both enjoyment and socializing, but it also fosters a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Huge thanks to our amazing teacher for creating such memorable moments filled with laughter and camaraderie. Plus, it's perfect for beginners! It's the perfect opportunity to dive into a new experience and discover the joy of Irish dance. I recommend it 100%.

    Damien is incredible and a great leader. You don’t need to know anyone, as long as you are willing to try something new he will keep you coming back. Great dancing, great music, great people and great fun.

Great night out, fantastic atmosphere and very good occasion to meet new people. It all starts from the basics but even if you have experience you'll have fun. Great beers at the pub also
