The Booley House Show is proud to present the very best of Irish music, song and dance, at Ballyduff Upper, County Waterford.

The show will start at 8.15pm on the 17th July 2019 and will continue every Wednesday night, until the 28th August 2019.

Resident Seanachaí James Lenane is a well known personality, All-Ireland winner in his field, and is sure to have audiences laughing as he regales times past.

The Booley House Show also includes the Michael Ryan School of Irish Dance, which encompass a wonderful range of original step dancing routines that always generate enthusiastic audience response.  A number of former Booley House dancers from this school have continued to have successful careers performing in Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, and other well-known shows.

Local set dance teachers, Tom Hyland and Ciara Dunne, will have their dancers doing Irish sets, often exciting audience members to dance in the aisles. A recent innovation to the show is the introduction of brush dancers, which have proved to be a showstopper.

The show is not intended to be a commercial venture, instead all profits are invested directly back into the local traditional music and dance scene. Profits earned go towards the promotion of local classes at highly discounted prices. They are also spent on the purchase of expensive instruments which are then hired out to students as they begin their classes. In the past, aided by local fund-raising, we have been lucky enough to receive state of the art lighting and sound systems for the hall. As the talents of the students progress, they are then given the opportunity to perform in The Booley House and showcase their skills. Everyone involved will tell you that taking part in Booley House is about the craic and the love of their art.

Tickets are now available from our website for upcoming performances.
It is advisable to come early in order to enjoy the complimentary tea, coffee and homemade cakes.

Rates: (includes tea/coffee and cake)

  • Adult €15
  • Student €12
  • Juvenile (under-16) €10
  • Senior Citizen €12
