Theatrically acclaimed and smash hit show “Essence of Ireland” is coming to the PLAYHOUSE this autumn.

Set against the backdrop of Ireland, England and America in the 20th 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"
