  • Quite Simply the Best Ever!

    By RAS HD
    Very simply put, I am a Christmas music fanatic and speaking for only myself, this is not only my favorite collection of Christmas tunes, but may be the greatest Christmas album ever recorded!
  • Best Christmas Album

    By Smexorrlent
    We play it every year, and it doesn't seem like Christmas until we have! :-)
  • Solid Celtic Christmas excellence

    By bellobard
    When the Celtic Christmas Podcast asked what are the best Celtic christmas albums, a bunch of people said The Bells of Dublin. I can't argue. Musically the album is fantastic. The Chieftains excel time and time again. They deserve the title Ambassadors of Irish Music. On the Christmas side, the album starts off a little slow to capture the Christmas spirit. But about five tracks in, the spirit takes over. There's also a nice mix of guest musicians to give it their outstanding international feel and appeal. Buy the album.

    I purchased this years ago for the I saw three ships sailing song and many became favorites, love nanci griffith's voice in the wexford carol, this really is a lovely collection of music.
  • A charming collection

    By KakeShoepoo
    I can't remember what possessed me to purchase this CD years ago, but I'm sure glad I did. My favorite track is O Holy Night sung by Rickie Lee Jones. Seems like an odd match, but it works, as does the rest of the CD.
  • The Wren

    By Tidixon Joe
    Never will you find a down home experience like this. You will be transported to Dublin for a Christmas treat. The wren song is worth the price of the album.
  • Eclectic Holiday Mash-up ... Chieftains style

    By robertoe
    This a wonderfully rich mix of songs for the holiday with the Chieftains tying it all together ... nothing cliche here. My favorite holiday album for many years. Take a look at the guest mix - Elvix Costello, Marianne Faithfull, Jackson Browne, Rikki Lee Jones ... who knows how they came up with this list but somehow it all works very well.
