Can anyone recommend a good metronome/metronome program that accentuates the off beats for Irish dance music (primarily jigs, reels and hornpipes)? Thanks.

If I understand what you are asking for... Pro Metronome for iPhone allows you to set the intensity of each beat individually. Each beat can be turned off or set to 1, 2, or 3. You can set the meter to pretty much whatever you want as well. I think the free version has a few limitations, but the pay wall is only a few dollars to have all the features.

I have an old wind-up Maelzel metronome (the kind in the shape of a pyramid) with a bell or dinger function. The 'nome tick-tocks as usual but you can set the bell to ring every 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 6th beat. This might be helpful, or might be plenty annoying.
