Riverdance in Ireland
It's easy to recall the rousing and rhythmic sound of tap shoes and the famous Riverdance performers.

If you plan a trip to Ireland over the next two months, seeing a Riverdance performance in their home country is a must. The troupe is on stage until August 27 at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Tickets can be pre-arranged in New Zealand from $150 a person.
