Ceili, in the Irish language, simply means gathering or party – when villagers would get together in a home or pub to play music and dance. In Ireland they will take an intermission with tea and scones.  We serve an assortment of baked goods such as cookies, soda bread, brownies, cupcakes, etc.

We have been told by past dance callers who were from Ireland  that our Ceili dance reminds them of the authentic Ceili’s that they attended when they were growing up.  We are proud to carry on the tradition of Ireland’s public social dance, the Ceili to celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day season.
