Over the years people have become increasingly more familiar with St. Patrick’s Day, but this month it’s time to embrace ‘The Ceilidh’. The Irish Association of Korea (IAK), in conjunction with the St. Andrew’s Society of Seoul, will be staging ‘The Ceilídh,’ a family fun event on Saturday, the 18th of October.
A Ceilídh, phonetically pronounced as Kaylee, has its origins rooted in the Celtic culture of Ireland and Scotland.

If you want to learn about about Celtic music, dance and culture then this is the perfect day to come along and find your roots. The day will be packed full of activities with a variety of Irish and Scottish dancing and music styles on show. The dances are very easy to learn and the entire day is centered around giving people the chance to learn and experience Celtic culture and have plenty of fun along the way.
