went to Brazenhead for our tour and was happily entertained by Helena's story telling and singing. There was also a couple guys that played, they were funny and witty and entertaining as well but the star of the night was Helena with her charming personality and story telling expertise as well as her accent which I could listen to all...

Yes, its touristy, but I was a tourist and I loved it!! My husband and I brought my mother aged 83 years, and our daughter, aged 14 years, and we all had a great evening. The food was delicious and we so enjoyed the singing and the stories. In fact, we would have enjoyed and additional song or two to... More

In the oldest bar in Dublin, with a group ranging in ages of 5 - 65, it was a wonderful evening! It was a small group setting so it felt interactive. Very entertaining, I would do it again.

You won't be spending time with any local Dubliners at this event (other than the staff). But that in itself doesn't mean I don't recommend it. I had a wonderful time. I was traveling on my own and easily made friends with the people I was sharing a table and we all had a blast. The food is very good... More

We stumbled onto this event as we had stopped by the Brazenhead Pub to grab something to eat and there happened to be spaces available upstairs for this folklore dinner. We absolutely loved Helena's storytelling and singing--and the menu was the perfect complement. It was our very first night in Ireland and we thought it was the absolute perfect way... More

Good food, good company, good music and amazing story telling - well worth a visit Upstairs in the oldest pub in Dublin, staff very eager to serve, no waiting for a drink - able to set up a tab and pay for drinks at the end of the evening. Good choice of menu options - that bacon and cabbage was... More

We had a group of 8 ranging from young adults to seniors. Our evening flew by. Helena was a delightful story teller and kept everyone in the audience engaged the entire evening. I'm usually not a huge history buff, but she kept me interested the entire night.

Our family of two parents and two young adults (18 and 21) absolutely loved this evening. The history, music and humor alone are worth the price. The meal was pretty good for a banquet, group meal.
