Celtic Steps are to transform their home at the Killarney Racecourse into an open-air theatre for a series of special evening shows set against the backdrop of the stunning Kerry Mountains from Tuesday, June 26 to Friday, June 29 inclusive.

Following on from the success of last year’s two open-air performances to coincide with the Summer Solstice, the local music and dance production will launch a total of four consecutive open-air shows this week to take advantage of the beautiful weather. These outdoor performances provide a unique opportunity to experience the magic of traditional Irish music, song and dance amidst the spectacular scenery of the beautiful Killarney National Park.

“Last Summer marked the first time that we performed the show outdoors, so we are really excited to relaunch the concept this week to coincide with the phenomenal weather we have been blessed with,” said David Rea of Celtic Steps. “We hope that the events will appeal to both locals and visitors alike.”

Highlights of the show will include Irish classics such as Raglan Road and contemporary favourites such as U2’s With Or Without You, a showcase of traditional Irish music from some of Kerry’s most celebrated musicians as well as some spellbinding performances from the Celtic Steps Dance Troupe, which combines the talents of over 21 world champion dance titles, and last but not least the opportunity to sit back and relax in one of Kerry’s most breath-taking venues.

The series of summer shows will commence on Tuesday, June 26 at the regular show time of 8.30pm and will run nightly until Friday, June 29.
