About Essence of Ireland

Set against the backdrop of Ireland, England and America in the 19th century and inspired by true events, Essence of Ireland tells a story of love, joy, happiness and heartache endured by Cora McGowan and Sean Dempsey as they are separated by emigration from each other and their beloved Ireland.

This moving story told through music, song and dance is a celebration of all things Irish and will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions giving audiences a unique Irish experience. St Patrick's Day is celebrated once a year throughout the world, but In Essence of Ireland it is celebrated every show!!

Featuring original choreography and music, together with Irish classics such as “Galway Girl”, “Irish Rover”, “Song for Ireland”, “Danny Boy”, “Carrickfergus” and Ireland’s Call”,

Essence of Ireland is as quoted by the Irish World News “Entirely unique and highly recommended, and not at all running of the back of anything else out there”.  This is a must see show!!!
