    We did ours a couple of weeks ago in some place near Deansgrange (Nazareth life institute or something like that). It was a Friday evening and all day Saturday affair. It wasn't too bad at all - nowhere near as cringe-y as I was expecting.

    Accord do a good one (though I'm probably biased as my parent's used to do their interfaith one for years)

    They're based on Harcourt St if I remember correctly.

    We found the Accord one on Harcourt Street to be the best one - was non-preachy and even a bit of a laugh, reccomended.

    what type of things do they do - is there role playing and things of that nature?

    Not in our one (thank God). It was divided into about 7 chapter, and some couple - not one attending the course - would give a presentation. There was a workbook which each couple fill out after each chapter and compare with each other, but no-one else.

    Yip Together course was brilliant, 1 day course split into 4 sections each with a break between them, actually enjoyed the course not preachy at all.

    Started off with a man in his fifties how discussed families and how they are different and problems associated with weddings. Was very good.

    Then there was a section on health and sex which I didn't really find great but i did find some info.

    Then the priest discussed the wedding itself and legal and religious matters which was really good. He even gives alot of info which will help if you make mass booklets etc all the readings. All the legal info what you need etc.

    The last section was a couple who came in to discuss their relationship. This part was brilliant the couple discussed everything about their relationship some really deep stuff.

    There wasn't alot of role playing or need to get involved with alot of the other couples there which was good.
