The band were brilliant! I wasn’t sure what our guests would think about a Ceilidh but everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.The caller was fab and explained the dances so well! We had a fantastic night. My only complaint would be we were only allowed to contact the band 3 weeks before the wedding - I didn’t know we needed a DJ as well to play in between their sets. Bit stressful trying to sort this out so close to the date. Had we spoken to them sooner, I’d have had plenty of time.

I hope that the 5 means first class, they were absolutely marvellous. Only had the band for an hour - big mistake - should have had two hours. They had everyone up dancing and it was brilliant. They added to the magic of the day. Warble were also extremely helpful when booking the band.

We're so glad we hired St Patricks Ceilidh to play at our wedding - they were a star hit with our guests who keep raving about the brilliant Ceilidh. Thank you guys. We had a smallish room in relation to the number of people who wanted to dance, but St Patricks Ceilidh managed the confined space beautifully. The band are great musicians and the caller is really fun with clear instructions. The venue demanded insurance and PAT testing certificates, which the band provided. The booking process with Warble was easy and clear and Emily responded quickly to all of my queries. It was also quick and easy to clarify the timings and arrangements for the day with the band directly as we got closer to the date. I'd highly recommend both St Patricks Ceilidh and Warble and would definitely use them again if we have another party!

Second time we have booked these guy's, they were equally as fantastic as the first time, would have no problem recommending them to any one. Very talented musicians. Prompt arrival and very agreeable and flexible, many thanks.

St Patricks Ceilidh were great! They are talented players, and all of our guests enjoyed the performance during our afternoon drinks reception. We picked this band because they can play the range of instruments we expected from a traditional Irish band, including the bodhran and uilleann pipes. They were helpful and friendly, and incorporated all of our requests. We really appreciated their thoughtfulness, for example, we requested solos from the bodhran player for the arrival of the groom. He's a talented player and even managed some bhangra rhythms on the bodhran for our fusion Indian-Irish wedding! We would book this band again.

The band were great. They were great musicians and played a variety of well known and more traditional Irish. They arrived in good time, set up quickly and started playing at the allotted time. The guests all thought they were brilliant and were disappointed at the end of the second set when they had to finish for the night.

Hi Jennie, I am really impressed with the entertainment the St Patricks Ceilidh provided, they were amazing and all of the guest's gave me positive feedback on the entertainment St Patricks Ceilidh gave us. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting band entertainment. Thank you so much I don't think the party would have been the same without them, thanks again.
