We visited this event at the Brazen Head on a Sunday night [having been to the Belvedere Hotel Irish night on the Saturday] in late April. I was very excited as it has such a high rating on Trip Advisor. Whilst we enjoyed the stories and brief musical interludes; the evening seemed to lack something- it may have been the... More

Ollie was a wonderful addition to our trip. First time to Dublin, and hearing music and storytelling was high on our list. We had no problem finding great authentic Irish music in many areas across the country, but this was well worth if for the tales, stories, history and lively background. A great thing to do early in your trip!... More

I have been to this dinner on both of my trips to Ireland. Even though the menu is the same, each night is just a little bit different. Unless you arrive in with a large group you don't know who you will end up sitting next to, which makes for some interesting conversations when you get talking about your own... More

A wonderful evening, great food, and music, but the personal feel of this introduction to Irish culture was priceless. Hearing the fairy tales, and bits of daily life of the Irish gave more understanding of the country than many sightseeing tours. It was friendly, fun, and intimate. Like friends over for dinner we got to hear about the life of... More

We enjoyed a dinner at the Brazen Pub and the highlight was Phillips' wonderful storytelling. The Irish are known for their stories and he did a superb job. I highly recommend this very fun and informative evening.

Helena was our storyteller, she was quite charming and had a beautiful voice. Very informative, the venue is ancient, I think the oldest pub in Dublin. We had a very nice time and even stayed afterward to drink downstairs. It was incredibly hot in the storytelling room so make sure you are wearing layers that you can peel off. Great... More

After a crazy day on the hop on hop off bus and a rushed taxi ride to the Brazen Head, my adult daughters and I had a great evening. I think they thought mom had booked them into a boring evening, but our storyteller Phillip won them over. Food was good, music was great, even the fellow guests added to... More

This was great, the story telling was fantastic, giving us a behind the story/tradition. Philip is a great storyteller, very animated, the music was fantastic. I'm glad we looked this up before our tour began. It was definitely a DON'T MISS event !!
