15th September 2017, Marine Hotel A massive thank you to everyone who performed at the Gala dinner at the Royal Marine on September 15th - the audience were blown away by the dancers and musicians. The dance floor was full from the time the band started and it just continued as the DJ came on - her leading the line dancing was a particular favourite moment. It was a testament to her ability that the dance floor was full right up to the last dance ! Thanks a million. Catherine 20th August Ghan House Carlingford Co. Louth Thanks Dublin City Folk.

Angela 18th February, Barberstown Castle So sorry for my late reply we were in Seville enjoying every moment of our new life as husband and wife :) Pierre and myself would like to thank you and the gang (soprano, musicians, irish dancers and dj) for making our day so perfectly brilliant! We weren't quite sure at first if the French gang would get into the mood or join in easily, we thought it might take them a while but you worked your magic and we couldn't get them off the dancefloor in the end! Our guests had an absolute ball and are bound to remember our wedding. They were all mesmerised by the soprano and I have to say so were we! She was everything we dreamed of for our big day! You guys are true professionals, you know what you're doing and that helped things to run smoothly and naturally from start to end. Thank you so so much for making our magical day so perfect! Kindest regards to you all! Kiera and Pierre 8th February, Farnham Estate, Cavan. Many thanks clem for organising our wedding drinks reception. We had a great time and the music was super. Thanks to all the musicians. They were very accomplished. Aileesh 17th February, Barberstown Castle.

Kindest regards to you all! Kiera & Pierre 31st December 2016, Christmas house Party, Swords Road, Malahide, Co Dublin. This Band are first class. Dublin City Folk Band played at a small and intimate venue at which 30 guests were present. The celebration simply would not have been a success without them. Guests from both sides of the Wedding Party who were initially shy about mingling fast became friends as they were gently and expertly encouraged by the Band to gather, to dance and not long after all wanted to participate in the singing and dancing. We were pleased to hear a variety of music played and/or sung with expertise, precision and enthusiasm ranging from traditional Irish Ballads, Ceili Music and a good helping of whatever the guests wanted, even blues, country, sing-along and easy listening etc. We were encouraged to submit requests. I suspect this Band could play any music asked of them and for us guests and for the Wedding Party it meant a very personal and unique experience. Jean December 30th 2016 Our party on the night before New Years Eve was made special by the band we hired for the occasion. Our friends and neighbours are still talking about it.Many thanks for providing the band Clem. A.J. and friends, Clontarf December 5th, Westbury Hotel, Dublin Thank you so much Dublin City Folk for the splendid entertainment for our corporate evenings entertainment.
