Moran’s tour of Dr Cosmos has received glowing reviews for his eccentric reflections on everyday modern life. The Guardian lauded the performance, “few fringe shows come as well stuffed with sparkling material”, with audiences worldwide delighted by the free-form show.
Told through Irish music and dance, A TASTE OF IRELAND explores magical tales spanning generations of Irish storytelling and culture. This world class show features World, All Ireland & National Champion Irish dancers, and musicians from around the globe performing unique music and dance that reflects the story that is Ireland.
Melodic Celtic flute is complemented by raw and rhythmic guitar to create the heart felt sounds of Ireland. The show features a dynamic musical duo and impressive dancing rarely seen outside of the World Championship stage. "A Taste of Ireland" was composed and choreographed in Dublin and is quickly on its way to becoming the new frontier in Irish entertainment.
Created and produced by Pace Entertainment Group, the show will transport the audience to a time and place where tunes, taps and tradition showcase the very essence of celebrating the Irish Spirit.

In 2009, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, 400 people set-off on the inaugural Darkness into Light 5km walk to raise funds for Pieta House. From small beginnings, the movement has grown year on year and in 2018 over 200,000 people took part in 150 locations, in 16 countries across 5 continents.
Each year the walk provides an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and to show their support for those who have been bereaved by suicide. Our team of volunteers, in Ireland and overseas, return year on year to help make the experience a rewarding one and to help us all continue to raise awareness in the global fight against suicide and self-harm.
Walk with us, talk with us, so that together we can create a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.
Please join us on Saturday 11th May this year!

With Special Guest: Mary Duff
Ireland's most popular "easy listening" entertainer returns to Australia in 2019.
Daniel has enjoyed tour and chart success in Australia and New Zealand for many years and earned himself a loyal following that stretches across both countries.
A native of Kincasslagh, Co. Donegal, Daniel's concert appearances have taken him from London's Royal Albert Hall and Dublin's Point Depot to New York's Carnegie Hall and Sydney's Opera House, but he still continues to set himself fresh ambitions and new worlds to conquer.
After selling out their Sydney St Patricks Day pop up show in under 48 hours, and performing sold out shows across the country in 2017, one of Ireland’s biggest bands today return to Australia in November. The Coronas are currently reaching new heights across the world performing huge stadium shows in their native Ireland, supporting one of Norway’s hottest acts Dagny on her Norwegian tour, playing some of the biggest festivals on the planet, and having four double platinum albums and numerous top 10 singles under their belt.
With special guests Paddy McHugh & Ryan Mc Mullan
After multiple sell out shows across Australia in recent years, Damien Dempsey returns with his full band in November to play Sydney Irish Festival as well as some headline shows.
Dempsey’s voice is all Dublin, yet wholly distinctive. It’s almost clichéd to say it, but he is part of a rich bloodline of Irish singers from Luke Kelly to Ronnie Drew, Christy Moore to Andy Irvine. To describe Damien Dempsey’s music to someone who hasn’t yet been exposed to it would be to take some reggae, fuse it with traditional Irish music, add in rock and folk and put it all through a grounded working class worldly aware yet caring consciousness, and you’re some bit of the way there.
The Limerick band has seen massive success over the past year, including the release of their new EP Gold & Rust featuring the lead, chart topping single Lions Share. This acoustic folk rock band has successfully built a dedicated legion of fans across the globe thanks to their captivating and unforgettable live sets. Playing gigs in South Africa, Australia, United States, Canada, Dubai, France, London and of course Ireland, they have had the opportunities to play on stage with the likes of Gavin James, Josh Ritter, Walking On Cars, The Pogues and The Trews.
Their unique arrangement of instruments includes the bodhrán, djembe, rhythmic guitar and banjo sets them apart as a truly original offering of Irish music.
