The Porter Boys

Return to Previous Page

The Porter Boys are a classic Irish band performing all the well-known songs that everyone loves. Add a good dose of jigs and reels and a spot of the blarney and you have the recipe for a real night to remember.

“The best Irish songs with great jigs and reels – the craic is cracking …”

Expect guitar and vocals and topped off with a feast of fine fiddle playing. The band can augment to a four-piece with the addition of either an accordionist or a second fiddle-player. You’ll hear all of your favourite traditional Irish songs – from ‘Wild Rover’ to ‘Black Velvet Band’ plus many more singalong classics, served up with harmony vocals that might give The Dubliners a run for their money.

Once the band starts playing, it’ll be difficult to stay in your seat. Before you know it, you’ll be up on your feet, jigging the night away! It’s all presented in finest traditional Celtic style through a top-quality PA system. What more could you want from a night with the Irish?

Enjoy a festive feast of traditional Irish entertainment – great music and dancing with a touch of the Blarney in the company of The Porter Boys.

  • A night of toe-tapping Celtic music, guaranteed to delight your guests
  • All your favourite Irish classics from professional musicians
  • Flexible line-up, duo, trio or quartet, depending on your requirements

    Porter Boys Irish Duo – Surprise 70th Birthday: April 2017

    The Porter Boys Irish Duo performed at my Mum’s surprise 70th birthday. We loved the performance and didn’t want them to stop! The party was a huge success and the excellent music really helped to create the atmosphere. Thank you very much, guys!

    Wedding Reception – 30/04/2016

    We booked The Porter Boys Duo to play a mix of well known Irish songs at our wedding reception. We could not have asked for a better band. Our guests loved them, we loved them!! Would highly recommend and can’t wait to plan another party just to have them perform again. Must have for any party. Thanks guys 🙂

  4. St Patrick’s Day Celebrations 12th March 2016

    The Porter Boys were very good, the craic was top drawer and they certainly made our St Patricks Day Celebrations a great success. We have already enquired about booking them again next year, thanks for a great afternoon.

  5. Mark & Diane Duggan’s Wedding

    Just a short note to say thank you for organising the The Porter Boys for our wedding last Saturday. They did a brilliant job and the band was particularly well received by all our guests and were absolutely brilliant. Would heartily recommend them to anyone.

    The band were superb, they made our day!

  7. Bob Lambe’s Work Party

    A big thank you to you and the ‘Porter Boys’ for helping to make our evening a memorable event. All RTC staff that I have spoken to really enjoyed the evening, both the music and the ‘dancing’. Sorry you had your work cut out to get people dancing in the right direction, but I guess it keeps you slim. Many thanks again……..

    The band were fantastic – they got everyone dancing at our evening do and were accommodating enough to alter their sets when our timings changed a little. We’ve used The Porter Boys in the past and I would ave no hesitation using them again in the future. Thanks!
