AllMusic Review by

Acoustically Irish, a collaboration between Irish multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly, both of whom are members of internationally successful Irish singing group Celtic Thunder, offers up an upbeat mix of traditional ("The Fields of Athenry," "The Rose of Allendale," "The Water Is Wide") and contemporary (Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl," Stockton's Wing's "Beautiful Affair," Hothouse Flowers' "Don't Go") pieces built on a foundation of percussion, piano, violin, mandolin, and guitar, and carried along by Byrne and Kelly's tight harmonies.
