  Irish Dancing

 Irish dancers
  The Irish Dancers perform live on stage every Friday and Saturday night at Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill in Galena, Illinois. The vibrant performances are 20 to 25 minutes long and consist of soft and hard shoe sets.

Based on the Irish peasant dress worn two hundred years ago, each dancer’s costume features a pleated skirt which is embroidered with interlocking and continuous lines of Celtic designs. A re-creation of the Tara brooch is fastened on the shoulder. The brooch holds a cape which falls over the dancer’s back.

Sets begin with soft shoe dances. The dancers’ quick precise movements of the feet excite the crowd. Next the dancers change into hard shoes and the rhythmic dancing inspire those watching to clap along to the music, stomp their feet and yell “woo-hoo.”

After the dancers have completed their routines, the live entertainment continues. The Pub rings with excitement as well-known Irish musicians take the stage. There is no cover charge to enjoy the entertainment.

Authentic Irish dance and music are just a few of the many ways The Irish Cottage tells the story of Ireland’s rich culture.
