Not to be missed, this is a truly delightful and entertaining evening: the setting is a historic medieval castle, resplendent with formal gardens, courtyards, winding stone corridors, banquet rooms filled with refectory tables, etc., all set in a beautiful pastoral setting guests are greeted as Lords and Ladies by a butler truly blessed with the Irish gift of the gab -- witty and hilarious throughout the evening meade flows at the reception in the courtyard prior to an excellent four-course meal, served in the banquet room by enchanting ladies who are dressed in period costumes, who sing and dance and play harps...They share the stage with a young lad straight out of Riverdance! We were 10 in our party, with ages ranging from 3 to 74 and everyone simply loved it! Pure magic!

Food was good. Entertainment was fun. The women's voices were beautiful. We really enjoyed the young male's dancing. He obviously was enjoying himself very much and he was quite good. The whole evening was delightful.
