A weekend packed with dancing & relaxing outdoor activities on the shores of Lough Allen.

Leitrim Dance Project presents The Lough Allen Dance Weekend taking place 21st - 23rd April 2017 in the Lough Allen Hotel, Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim.

Dancers: Siobhan Butler, James Devine, Joe McGuiggan, Maureen Culleton, Timmy The Brit McCarthy, Edwina Guckian and Liam Scanlon.

Musicians: Harry Bradley, Danny Diamond & Stephen Doherty

It is a weekend packed with music, dance and relaxing out door activities on the shores of Lough Allen with some of Ireland’s most well known dancers come together to share their steps, experience and knowledge.

The main idea behind this weekend is for people to experience several different styles of dance from Ireland. All musicians and dancers are welcome to join in. We’d especially love to see local people and visitors join in at the music and dance session each night. The location of the dance weekend, nestled below the scenic town of Drumshanbo, is one of Ireland’s most beautiful hidden gems; Lough Allen surrounded by the iron mountain of Sliabh an Iarann and the Arigna Mountains home to the Arigna Mines.  Don’t miss your chance to do some Stand Up Paddle Boarding and discover the crannógs and islands of Lough Allen, take a walk across the Arigna Mountains on the famous Miners Way and ease your way into the day with a relaxing hour of pilates on the lake shore each morning.

Hope you can join us for Ireland’s most unique dance weekend.
