What is a céilí?

Ceilis (kay-lee) are evenings of traditional Irish social dance. Great fun for all - novices and experienced dancers, young and old alike. And if you don’t feel like stepping it out, enjoy a glass from the bar, listen to the music and watch the fun on the floor!


A short instructional session is provided at the start of each Ceili to help welcome new dancers.  Our callerBill White will guide you through a varied program of traditional dances, from easy “come-all-ye” circle dances to more challenging “sets” (quadrilles), favourites such as the Gay Gordons and of course a couple of waltzes.  You are sure to have a great time!


Bring your dancing shoes (leather soles are great), especially in winter to keep the dance floor dry and safe.
