Dublin Scottish Country Dance Club

Group profile

Dublin Scottish Country Dance Club was founded in 1966 by a group of Scots living in Ireland. Today, the membership is international, with ages ranging from a teenager to over-80. Visitors from other areas are always welcome.
We dance on Thursday nights from 8:15pm at Dun Laoghaire Presbyterian Church hall. The Club is mainly a social, rather than teaching, dance group of around 2 sets, with instruction shared between four dancers on a monthly rota. Most weeks music is provided by John and Judy Barnes on accordion and fiddle respectively.
In autumn 2018, for the first time, we had enough newcomers to run a separate 8-week beginners’ course.
We hold an annual dance, and at least one ceilidh during the year. Occasionally we provide entertainment at care homes and hospitals or for special events.
