Hotel Take On The Jerusalema Dance Challenge
Posted on: Wed, 27 October, 2021
Last month we saw the Swiss Police force challenge An Garda Siochana to the Jerusalema Dance Challenge and our guys in blue not only accepted the challenge but one could argue they set the bar that little bit higher for anyone looking to take on the dance next.
Never an sector to shy away from a challenge, we have now seen a number of Ireland's hotels step up and show us their versions of the dance with an aim to bring a smile to our faces when we really need it.
On this week’s #TravelTuesday we have looked at some of the efforts from Irelandhotels.com partner hotels, all of whom accept the #GoAnywhere gift card. While the videos give us a chance to critique the footwork of some of the hotel’s teams, there’s also a great chance to take a quick look at some hotels great facilities, for when we are able to travel again.

As we have seen in the past, with the Baby Shark Dance challenge, The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny is definitely not a hotel to shy away from an opportunity to bust a few moves. The team from Kilkenny showed us some impressive Irish Dancing skills but they also took us on a mini tour to one of Kilkenny’s best known landmarks, Kilkenny Castle, as well as the hotels petting farm and adventure trail, plus the hotel gym and pool facilities.
From the hotels impressive onsite golf course, to their playground and gym facilities fun was certainly had during the making here. The team at the luxury 5-star Heritage Hotel in Laois put a huge amount of effort into this, with some making a real splash and even the addition of some very elegant ballet skills.
The Heritage is one of the midlands best known hotels with an award winning spa and a selection of dining opportunities. The hotels Afternoon Tea is famous and they proudly boast of the local food produce that makes it to their menu.
Featuring dance moves on the hotel’s grand stairwell to golf buggy fun on the fairways, the well-known Cavan resort looks as good as ever as we’re taken through the hotels most well renowned and best loved features, perfect for any family getaway.
While the hotels famed INEC venue often takes the plaudits for hosting shows like The Riverdance or Dirty Dancing, the team from the much loved family friendly hotel in Kerry have shown they’re more than capable of taking centre stage with their fancy footwork. From the hotel swimming pool, and lobby, on stage in the INEC to their outdoor facilities the team take us on a 2min whistle stop tour of the one of the country’s most recognisable hotels.
The Gleneagle Hotel is renowned for its famed family focused welcome. With a selection of onsite activities and restaurants and located a short distance from Killarney town centre it is not surprising the hotel is so highly regarded with families.
The Grand Hotel in County Dublin really make the most of their magnificent surroundings in their video below. The hotel sits right on the coast next to one of Dublin’s most loved beaches in Malahide and offers the perfect backdrop to any video, especially this one. From breath taking rooftop views around North County Dublin to the bar counter cocktail moves the Dublin hotel shows they’re well able to keep up with the colleagues from around the country.
The team at Cork City's Imperial Hotel brought the modern dance challenge to their historically rich surrounding turning their grand marble lobby into temporary dance floor. The Imperial Hotel in Cork is the perfect starting point (or end point) for any Wild Atlantic Way exploration or indeed a Cork City exploration. The hotel's famed Escape Salon Salon and Spa also offers those really looking to unwind the chance to get away from it all. The team will certainly be dancing again when the have the opportunity to welcome you back.
Unfortunately, we could not feature all the hotels that took up the challenge but we must mention some other hotels who put a huge amount of effort into their videos including;
Bantry’s Maritime Hotel, who in fact set the challenge to their sister hotel The Gleneagle, is normally a place to sit back, relax and take in the views of Bantry Bay, but the crew at the hotel ramped up the pace by taking us inside and outside of the hotel and indeed around some local Bantry attractions.
The Blue Haven Hotel in Cork took things a step further. The boutique hotel in the centre of Kinsale made things into a family affair, as valiant as the efforts were from the team from The Blue Haven they were outdone by some of the most flawless dancing from the supporting cast (and the Blue Haven mascot!).
A massive well done to all the hotels that took part in the Jerusalema Dance Challenge, a brilliant effort to bring a smile to our faces, while we may not be able to travel now we have been given a little taste of what awaits us when we can travel again. Hotel teams have been working tirelessly to ensure your future visit is met with the highest Health and Safety standards in order to provide you with peace of mind and a relaxing stay.
