What is a Ceilidh?


Originally the word Ceilidh (kay-lee) descended from the Gaelic word for ‘gathering’ or ‘party’… However, these days when people think of a Ceilidh, they think of a fun filled night of wild dancing, good music and great company!

As for the rest: they all mean pretty much the same!

The beauty of a ceilidh or Barn Dance is that everyone can take part, young or old, experienced dancers to beginners and even those with two left feet!

Not all your guests will be interested in Disco music and many people are nervous on the dance floor – but with a Ceilidh you’re walked through the steps so there’s nothing to be worried about!

Having a Ceilidh is the perfect Icebreaker! Whatever the occasion, from team-building days, to Weddings and Birthdays, Office Parties, Corporate Functions or Student Nights!The emphasis is on having fun and being sociable!

No experience is necessary! You and you’re guests will be under the watchful eye of our professional caller who’ll be with you every step of the way – walking you through the moves before each dance and continuing to call out helpful hints through out the rest of the dances. When you book Northern Lights our experienced callers come as standard to guide your guests through the evening.
