Arklight were recommended to us by our wedding venue and we were not disappointed! I could not recommend Finbarr and the band highly enough, we had them as our wedding band and Finbarr was on the DJ set after. From the moment they started playing the crowd never left the dance floor, they were just incredible at reading the crowd and keeping the party going. They did a fantastic job at playing our first dance, we really enjoyed it. They played music to suit all age groups, from waltzes to ABBA and everything in between! We had so many people compliment ye and asking who the band were, no doubt ye will be getting plenty of future bookings from our crowd! Thanks so much again lads, ye are fantastic at what ye do!

Arklight played at our wedding. It was an absolutely brilliant night. I can’t say enough about the band they created a great atmosphere and kept the floor filled throughout the event. The band members were a pleasure to deal with and both myself and my wife would highly recommend them for any wedding!

Arklight were absolutely fantastic fun at our wedding in September. The floor was full all night long, and Finbarr and the guys played a fantastic selection of diverse songs that had everyone dancing nonstop. All of our guests are still talking about them – even those who normally never dance! Finbarr was a pleasure to deal with from the very first time we spoke – true professionals.

Arklight!! What a fantastic band! Such a pleasure to deal with, we changed our first dance song two nights before the wedding this wasn’t a problem for them they were so accommodating and reassuring. The lads had us and our guests absolutely rocking for the entire night people were raving about them. I genuinely did not leave the dance floor! They played music catering for every guest there which was important to us! They were so interactive with the crowd we had the best fun! I cannot wait to see these guys again I’ll be following up with Finbarr for any gigs coming up. 5 stars!!!

We had Arklight for our wedding in November 2022. They were so professional to deal with, especially with us planning from Australia. Each of our guests danced the nigh away and Arklight/DJ were absolutely sensational. Thanks again for providing us with a musiv filled wedding.

We had ARKLIGHT for our wedding last week, we dealt with Finbarr (lead singer) the weeks leading up to the wedding, he is a absolute professional, always on the other end of the phone if we needed anything. The night of the wedding the dance floor was full from start to finish with all age groups. Amazing Band!!! Thank you so much lads.

We got married in August 2022 and Arklight made it an absolutely unforgettable night. Our guests are still talking about Arklight nearly 4 months later and everyone commented on how the dancefloor was always full, all thanks to them. The dance off between the girls and fellas is still a talking point for anyone that was at the wedding. Some craic! Couldn’t recommend them highly enough to anyone getting married. Absolutely class, a night we will never forget. Easy to deal with and nothing a problem. Thanks again and much continued success!

Arklight were very professional and a pleasure to deal with from start to finish ever since we booked them for our wedding in October. We really appreciated the band taking the time to learn our first dance song and they did such an amazing job with it on the night. Finbarr and the lads kept the dancefloor going strong right to the end by playing music that everyone of all ages really enjoyed. Lots of our guests, young and old have said that the band were amazing. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
Brian and Sylvia.

We are delighted to have picked them to play and for being part of our wedding day , they made it the best day ever, to end with a favourite Purple Rain was a surprise and was truly amazing we can’t thank all of the band enough for the best time of our lives .

What a band!!!!
We initially booked Arklight in early 2019 for our 2020 wedding. Due to COVID we had to change our date twice, but Finbarr and the band were so accommodating and very easy to work with when arranging our dates.
When we went to see them in 2019 we were blown away by how they engaged the crowd at the wedding and the versatility of their music. When our wedding in 1/1/23 came about we were hoping that they would be as good as the day we saw them. We can safely say they were better than we could have hoped for! The dance floor in Ballygarry was never empty and all our guests thoroughly enjoy the music.
We requested a first dance that Arklight had not previously done but they were able to facilitate us and learned it for our wedding, they also offered us the alternative of playing it from an MP3 but we were thrilled they sang it live for us. Arklight were fantastic and really added to our special day, everyone really enjoyed the music and the atmosphere it created. We were rarely off the dance floor ourselves and had a fantastic time!
It was lovely to see many of our guests go up to thank the band at the end of the night, a testament to how excellent and professional they were. Thank you Finbarr and Arklight for an amazing set as band & dj on our wedding day!

We could not have whished for a better wedding band. The guys were fantastic. They catered for all our national and international guests. Everyone was dancing all night – we would highly recommend this band to anyone who wants top class entertainment on their big day. Thank you guys!

Arklight played at my sons wedding in the K Club, Straffan, Co Kildare. To say they had the place hopping is an understatement. What I loved most was that they catered for all age groups and from the second the first note was struck until the last note, guests were on the floor. Once the band finished their set, Finbarr, the lead singer looked after the disco which was fantastic (an ‘all in one’ you could call Arklight) and again he read the crowd so well that we just didn’t stop dancing. I would highly recommend this band certainly for a wedding but also for many different types of functions.
Best of luck lads going forward.

Well, where do I start?
Arklight played at our wedding in The Salthill Hotel in Galway on August 15th, and honestly, they were the best decision of our whole wedding. From the get go, they had the floor filled, the energy electric, and our guests engaged. As a musician myself, and with many of my guest musicians, ensuring our band was top notch was so important to us. They did not disappoint. They are all incredible musicians and entertainers in their own right, and so many of our guests commented that they were the best wedding band they’d ever heard, no joke.
Communication was excellent throughout all the planning, and the whole thing couldn’t have gone any smoother. They set up quickly and early. They were super-accommodating, allowing me to “sing” (not sure if you could call it that!), and sean nós dance solo during the night. They EVEN learned “The Green and Red of Mayo” especially (and being from Kerry, that was a big ask…secretly I think they enjoyed it though!).
They SOUND lads! They play in the Quays in Galway from time to time, and I can’t WAIT for them to be back.
Thanks for a great night full of magical memories Finbarr, Tony, Brendan & Co. 🥰🥰🥰 My feet have still not recovered!!!

Thank you so much Finbarr and Arklight for a fantastic night at our wedding. Everybody commented on how great you were & loved the screen behind the band, that was a great touch 👌 Finbarr has a brilliant singing voice & we’re so happy we chose you guys. I’d definitely recommend Arklight as a wedding band, they sang a great variety of songs & were very lively. Wish we could do it all again.
Thanks a mill again lads 👏👏👏

Arklight played for our wedding on Sat 2nd October in Ballygarry house hotel. This was our third date due to covid. Finbarr was an absolute gentleman and true professional from the very minute I picked up phone to book. Arklight played a super mix of old and new tunes and hence the dancefloor was full all night. Arklight were mighty craic and read their audience like a book and played a mix that suited everyone. Arklight made our wedding truly a fantastic night. I would highly recommend arklight for a wedding or any occasion. Thanks a mil Tracy and Brendan

Arklight played at our wedding and we couldn’t recommend them enough! They were absolutely amazing. The dance floor was full all night and everyone is still talking about them! Finbarr was a pleasure to deal with, we had 2 postponements due to covid and the band were extremely accommodating and lovely to deal with during the whole process. There was great crowd interaction with Finbarr organising a dance off which everyone got involved in. There were no dull moments from start to finish and there was music to suit everyone. If you’re looking for a band you would be making a mistake to pass these guys! Thanks again Finbarr & crew! Wishing you every success. Jonathan & Ciara Marry, Boyne River Farm September 2021

We had Arklight play at our wedding at the weekend and all I can say is WOW!!! They read the crowd and had the dance floor full all night !! I couldn’t recommend Finbarr and the lads enough ! They went out of their way to make sure every age group was catered to and they kept the crowd going from start to finish . Finbarr is an absolute gent and was amazing to deal with throughout three postponed dates . Thanks so much lads !

Arklight performed at my dad’s 70th birthday party earlier this month and they did not disappoint! They played a great variety of music (from traditional to modern), which kept all our guests entertained – the dancefloor was full all night! They really do know how to play to the crowd and we’ve had nothing but positive comments from friends and family since. Finbarr and his team were an absolute pleasure to deal with both on the night and leading up to the party. I really couldn’t recommend them enough!
Tracey LenihanJanuary 27, 2023 at 11:39 pm
We can’t praise Finbarr and Arklight enough!There was a crowd on the dancefloor at all times.The singing was beautiful throughout, especially the first dance!The way they got everyone involved with the Siege of Ennis, dance offs, riverdance, violin out on the floor interacting and the choice of songs was super.
They read the crowd so well.Ive received loads of videos of how much fun people had on the dancefloor and that’s down to Arklight. So many guests were raving about them and I’ve gotten WhatsApps as well this week asking about them.Thank you so much for letting my friend play the violin,it was such a special moment🤩🤩 No request was ever too much and they did everything with a smile on their faces.
Also I have to say from the outset, they have been an absolute dream to deal with.Every email was dealt with very promptly and efficiently.They were so professional and even the switch to DJ was very smooth.
Arklight made our wedding so fun and lively.We both really appreciate the effort and talent of this band.Those memories they helped create on the dancefloor will last us a lifetime!

Arklight were the life and soul of the party for our wedding in June 2022. We booked them well in advance 2 years ago following an online Irish wedding band recommendation page and we could not be happier with our choice.
The band were professional, punctual and communicated well with us via email right up until the wedding so we were never concerned.
Our guests never left the dance floor and the party continued until nearly 2am. Finbarr and the band interacted so well with us and our guests and chose music that matched the vibes so well. We even had a break-dancing session with a group of b-boys (including my husband) which Arklight also loved and encouraged by keeping the riff going. We will always remember this night with the excellent music as being the best night of our lives. Wish we could relive it!

We booked Arklight at our wedding last March and they were absolutely amazing. The dance floor was full all night and we’ve had noting but compliments on the band since. They played a huge variety of music from traditional to modern to you name it! Couldn’t fault them and the positive energy they brought with them. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
Grace FoleyJanuary 27, 2023 at 11:41 pm
I cannot recommend this band highly enough. As a singer myself I was very careful in choosing our band and they really were incredible. All our guests are talking about them. They managed to keep the dance floor full for the night and some people even said that when they weren’t dancing they just loved sitting back and watching these guys perform! They were so so accomodating with first dance and father daughter song choices and gave it their all from beginning to end. If you are booking your wedding band you SERIOUSLY need look no further. 😁
