In Ireland, ‘doing a turn’ means performing for one’s family and friends. Over the Christmas break, the Irish love nothing more than to come together and entertain - it’s one of the oldest ways of expressing the real spirit of the holiday season.

In the venerable surroundings of Slane Castle, a selection of Ireland’s leading performing talent come together in a unique gathering. Over dinner, Phil Coulter and his guests regale one another with story and anecdote, entertain with music and song and revel in each other’s company.

So gather round and join singers Maire Brennan (Clannad), Maura O’Connell (seen in Gangs of New York) and Brian Kennedy (hit with Your Short Life), Jean Butler (Riverdance) in a selection of seasonal Irish songs. Rejoice in the spiritual splendour of the Celtic Tenors as they sing a special arrangement of Adeste Fideles and Danny Boy. Marvel at the Acapella precision and beauty of The Voice Squad, Ireland’s premier traditional vocal group. And join Roma Downey for her interpretation of a holiday Irish Blessing.

Enjoy the ‘craic’ over dinner as author Frank McCourt reads from his international bestseller ‘Angela’s Ashes’, listen as the original star of Riverdance, Jean Butler, recalls her introduction to Irish dance, and marvel at Ireland’s latest dance sensation, ANOM as they perform a specially commissioned holiday dance routine.
