Ultimate Ceilidh Experience - Ceilidh Band Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

The band were incredible, they really made the evening for us - the caller was very patient with a boisterous (and not very skilled at dancing) crowd! We had a very international audience from all countries and they absolutely loved the Ceilidh music and the band played a good variety of songs. In the lead up to our wedding the communication was great and we didn’t have to worry about anything. Would 100% recommend for a wedding or party, thank you for such a great performance!!

Leanne ,

Both the band and the caller were excellent at judging the needs of the particpants at our 60th party. With some unexpected surprises from trh family thrown into your schedule we thank you so much just for fitting in and giving us all such a great time.

Mr & Mrs Williamson,

We just wanted to extend a very huge thank you for the amazing performance you gave on Saturday. It was better than we could ever have imagined! You played with such talent and enthusiasm that was infectious to everyone there! The fact the dance floor was full all night despite over 60% of the people there never having done scottish dancing before is a true testament to you! It was so magical to see. To do this despite the long journey was fab. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone in any part of the world!

Heather & Jonny, Blackwater Castle, Cork

Thank you so much for being part of our big day. It was so much fun from start to finish and having the ceilih was just the perfect way to integrate our family and friends. I'm still getting messages from people saying that the music was their favourite part of the day and that they've never danced like that before! Thank you for making the last of our day so easy and so much fun from the organisation to the actual dancing. It was a pleasure to have you all there.

Mr & Mrs Fettes, Hodson Bay Hotel

We all had a brilliant time on Friday night. People are still messaging me about it. Thank you for making it what I hoped it would be.

Bryan Patterson, Magheralin

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work on our wedding day and in the build up to it. Your professionalism and attitude was noted by all involved. You made the process very simple and we would first like to thank you for that. Secondly we would like to thank you for the day itself. We could not have asked for better in all areas. Feedback from all guests was excellent, perfect balance of music and description so that everyone could get involved from the age of 7-70. Highly recommend the band for any event and will hopefully be able to work with you again.

Mr & Mrs Hazlett, Limepark

An excellent event which brought together our sixth form community immediately after their trial exams. The band was terrific and the caller had everyone involved from the outset. This was a revelation for our students who launched themselves into the whole spirit of cielidh. Highly recommend as something genuinely different, highly engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. We have already booked the band again for next year.

Mr Harper, Portadown College

Everyone had such a great time they've asked me already to check your availability for next year!

Darren Gibson, Lisneal College

I loved the band when they played at my niece's wedding. We all had the best time dancing to them, so I've booked them again for my forthcoming birthday party. Cant wait to relive the fun!

Tim Wheeler (Ash), Lisburn

A big thank you to the band for playing at our wedding in Loughcrew in August. Not only were they super speedy at setting up, they managed to get both sides of the family up jigging away, including those who have never been witnessed before on the dance floor. Bravo! Would definitely recommend. Many thanks.

Mr & Mrs Naper, Loughcrew House, Oldcastle

We had a fantastic wedding day and loved every minute! The ceilidh was such fun and the dance floor was never empty which was exactly what we wanted. Thank you for creating such a fun, energetic part of our reception, for a quite a few people it was their first ever ceilidh and everyone said how much they enjoyed it. Best wishes and many thanks for helping to make our day such great craic!

Mr & Mrs Jamison, Gracehall

Thank you so much for the brilliant ceilidh that you provided at our wedding reception on New Years Eve, we had so much fun and we know that our guests really enjoyed it. We would definitely be recommending you to our friends and hope to see you at other weddings and events very soon.

Mr & Mrs Wilson, Parkanaur Manor House

Thank you so much for travelling to Kildare to provide the evening entertainment for our wedding. Our guests are still complimenting us on what a fun night you provided! Thank you so much.

Mr & Mrs Wallace, Kildare

A lovely bunch of people who play fantastic music to entertain all. Thank you for your recent attendance at our event, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!!

Pauline Foster, Orange Tree House

These guys are amazing. A lovely bunch of people who play great music together! We all had a ball. All feet on the dance floor. Thank you. Loved it!

Pauline Killeen (Killeens of Arranmore Hotel), Arranmore Island

Excellent group, made taking part in the dances easy and enjoyable. Ruth, the caller had such patience and a relaxed manner. Great evening, really recommend this band.

E.b. Whitehead,

Came along to an international students weekend away where some people didn't speak very good English and really made everyone feel welcome, encouraged people to dance and created a great atmosphere - it probably wasn't the biggest gig they will ever do but we appreciated the effort they put into it!

Andrew Bennett, North Coast

I had my Lady Captains Day in Omagh Golf Club and we were entertained by the band. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!! Such a great nights craic and dancing and the music was superb. Thank you so much. A class Act!.

Annette Elkin, Omagh Golf Club

The band truly made our wedding reception a success. Many of our guests commented on how good they were. We all had a lot of fun and they were so friendly and professional from the time of booking to our reception. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Mr & Mrs Corkill, Cultra Manor

I highly recommend the band, having worked with them on a number of occasions including my sisters wedding and a recent 40th birthday party they have been professional from start to finish. Their great playing and encouraging enthusiasm was enough to get people on the dance floor without anyone being pressured. The explaination and demonstration of each dance allowed the novice and experienced alike to have a time full of good dancing and laughter. Much fun was had by all. They know how to throw a good party!

Sharon Condy,

Thank you all the band for the fantastic performance on Friday night at the Culloden Hotel, everyone had a ball and it was the perfect end to a great day

Mr Leeson, Culloden Hotel

You were all outstanding and you even managed to keep a straight face at our terribly bad dancing!!

Kenny & Carly,

A very big thank you from RNLI, everyone enjoyed themselves very much - as was evident on the night too!

Larne RNLI,

Thank you for making that last of our day so easy and so much fun from the organisation to the actual dancing. It was a pleasure to have you all there. Thanks again for everything.
