22nd Sept 2018, Parknasilla Hotel, Kerry
We were very happy with how our wedding music turned out! Walking into the ceremony to the trio that was playing was absolutely beautiful! It really added a special touch to the setting. During our cocktail hour, even though we were taking pictures, our guests shared videos of the music and this also added a unique touch for our guest outside enjoying themselves. Lastly, during our reception, we were very happy with the hour of instrument music then the DJ to end the night! He was very energetic and we appreciate the “Philly” music and requests he was able to play for us. Planning this wedding abroad was made easy with Clem. He was able to assure me and FaceTime me with details of the day. I’m very happy I was able to find this group for our wedding! I would highly recommend them!

Foxrock Church, Radisson Hotel Dublin, 4th August 2018
We employed Dublin City Folk for the full day to play at our ceremony and also to play at our drinks reception, main function and professional dj. We were hugely pleased with their organisation and playing throughout the day. They provided a brilliant tenor and musicians at the ceremony, musicians for the drinks in the gardens of the Radisson Blu Hotel, and then we had a super great fun ceili and even rock and roll for the evening entertainment. Then the professional dj took over to the end of the night. Everything ran brilliantly including the classical and traditional music for the ceremony, the ambience music for the drinks reception, and the spontaneous ceili was also great fun..They also organised our first dance through their music system. We cannot praise the organisation of the day enough. Their musicians were thoroughly professional and of the highest standard.

We had a destination wedding in Ireland and we hired the Dublin City Folk band to play for us and we just loved them! The very friendly trad band was amazing and the energetic Irish dancer got us all dancing right from the start. They were very open to create the atmosphere we were looking for by incorporating music requests we had. Having them play our first dance song live was very magical and memorable for us. The DJ was perfect at creating the right atmosphere during our various games or moments throughout the evening. We strongly recommend Dublin City Folk Band!! Thanks again guys!

Many of our guests came from Canada and different parts of the United States so we were delighted that the band were able to give an international flavour to their performance. All requests were played and there was also great participation in their light hearted ceili and popular music and rock and roll dancing. Thank you so much. You created great memories of our special day!
Thomas Young.

You played for my Daughter's post wedding barbecue and you really got the party going which was no mean feat as most of the guests were up until the early hours the night before. Half of the guests were from the UK and had never seen Irish dancing or heard Irish music before, they absolutely loved every minute of it. We all had a wonderful time and it was a perfect way to end a perfect wedding weekend. We all especially enjoyed the dance caller guiding us through each dance with great patience as she needed it in our case. Your music was so cheerful and happy it created a most enjoyable atmosphere. Thank you for doing such a great job, I'll definitely be recommending you.
Mary Donohoe  

It was great to get Clem and the group to play at our work event. The music really added to our day and everyone's enjoyment.

Traditional Irish Music in Aqua Bar - Thursday 22 March 2018
I recently booked Clem and the team at Dublin City Folk to play some traditional Irish music for a corporate event at which we were hosting guests from many different European countries. From the moment I called Clem was super helpful and accommodating and extremely flexible to work around what we wanted. The music was absolutely brilliant and really made the night something special. I would highly recommended Clem and the guys at Dublin City Folk they provided us with a fantastic service and a great evening's entertainment. I would recommend the Dublin City Folk not only for Corporate Functions but also for family gatherings, parties and celebrations. Music was first class. Thanks a mil

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!

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.

Hi Clem, Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. On behalf of my wife Katherine and I we would like to Thank You most sincerely for the Wonderful musicians you provided for our Wedding Day. The Church music in Ballyhaunis was heavenly and was commented on by many of our wedding guests. Jenny your soprano is a brilliant singer and she was very good on the key board. Tom Clancy and Moss are brilliant musicians and very professional.  They were great at the church and they entertained the wedding guests in the afternoon while we were getting photos taken. They provided a Great Nights entertainment in Westport and it was enjoyed by all. Mildred Smith the ceilli caller was very good and entertaining and got every body up dancing. A lot of the wedding guests knew her as she works for the local radio station. The DJ was very good and provided a nice mix of music which was enjoyed by all. We had a Great Wedding Day and even the weather stayed fine that day as we had a lot of snow the day before. All our Wedding Guests had a great day and thanks to you Clem we had beautiful music and entertainment. I am very sorry we didn't get back to you sooner as we are not long back from our honeymoon. Thank's very much for organising and providing all our Wedding Music. It was nice dealing with you in the build up to the wedding. We will send you a Wedding photo when we get them off the photographer. Once more Thank You, and Thank's for sending your great Musicians even though you could not make it yourself,

We wanted to get a really good band at a competitive price (not easy to do!) and we found the right one in City Folk. They performed at our drinks reception and put on a great show later on with a ceili and Riverdance dancers. We used the dry dock bar for the dancing and it worked a treat. We can’t speak too highly of the band. They also supplied a great dj well into the early hours of the morning…and all at a great price without any sacrifice in quality.

Myself and Davie just wanted to thank you and the guys for making our wedding so perfect and pulling it all together for us. I had booked Dublincityfolk based on all the wonderful references I had read. Some people told us we were taking a risk having not seen you perform but we were confident everything would be fine and how right we were. Throughout the whole day we received praise on our choice of entertainment. The church music was perfect, the pre reception was perfect, the ceili's were perfect, all the music was perfect. And the dj you organised did such a great job too. There we're sore feet all round the following morn. We planned our wedding for over a year and while there were some areas which gave us a headache, dealing with yourself was such a weight off. You took control of our day from start to finish and dealt with everything in such a personal and at the same time professional way. We can't thank you enough. And also to put up with all my last min changes ... thank you so much. I really hope to see you perform at a wedding or event I'm attending in the future. I know we'll be guaranteed a great night. Again, really can't thank you all enough. You made our day. All the best,
Linda and Davie

Dear City Folk, Many thanks for providing the music for our drinks reception at the Brooklodge. All our guests said that it was great!! We were sorry that we did not get to hear it all because of photos etc. But the reports were great from our guests. Thanks again and best of luck.
