Paddy's Irish Hooleys is a unique experience where the audience not only get to meet top Irish musicians, singers and dancers but are guided in joining in with dancing and playing music. A great night out for all groups and occasions.

Paddy’s Irish Hooleys is an entertainment firm that provides a fun-filled educational experience for tourists and locals alike. It is also great for team building, corporate nights out, hen or stag parties or simply for those occasions when you want something completely different but fun.

You will become part and parcel of Paddy’s Irish Hooley and not just as a listener. In the past, Irish people entertained themselves in their own homes or in the nearby pub. Paddy’s Irish Hooleys want you to experience that again. Participants will receive an informative commentary on the history of Irish music and dance. You will be dancing Irish dances (you'll be shown how), playing traditional instruments (you will get a lesson in the basics) as well as singing and clapping along with musicians, singers and dancers in a relaxed atmosphere with finger food and drinks.

The owner of Paddy’s Irish Hooleys is Paddy Faughnan, a champion accordionist who has been playing music in Ireland and all over the world for over 40 years. He has gathered together a selection of singers, musicians and dancers. So come and join the hooley.

It might suit your group to have Paddy’s Irish Hooleys visit you instead of you visiting them. This can be arranged as Paddy’s Irish Hooleys are available to travel.
