Lisa Kelly gave an interview about the album, saying "The songs are very specific to this album, and it definitely reflects the name of it. When you throw in songs, like Isle of Innisfree and Galway Bay, you give people a glimpse of where you come from, and how beautiful Ireland actually is. And then we've got the more modern Irish songs with You Raise Me Up and The Voice, and then you've got the reliable and the beautiful Danny Boy, which I think people really expect to hear from you. So it was definitely in the heading of the album, called An Irish Journey. I think this really does reflect what it is."

David Downes also gave an interview about the album, saying "We've recorded The Water is Wide with the fabulous Bagad de Lann-Bihoué, and it's an interesting collaboration because when I was nineteen I toured with Alan Stivell, a famous Breton musician, and I worked with Dan Ar Braz, an also kind of famous Breton musician, and a lot of Celtic Woman musicians and our engineer, Andrew Boland, have worked in the past with the Bagad de Lann-Bihoué and with many musicians over there. So it seemed like a very natural collaboration. We're kind of brothers-in-arms, I suppose, so we all really just thought this would be a great idea. The bagad (bagpipes) is so fantastic, and the opportunity is great for us to get to work with them."
