Food & music & story telling was great. The meal was included in our 8 day tour. The stories give a background to Irish traditions.

I went here with a large family group to celebrate a recent birthday and we all really enjoyed the evening. Being from Dublin I was a little skeptical about the "stories" element but Helena was highly witty and entertaining and not at all "Oirish" in her delivery. She was also a beautiful singer which came as a surprise but added... More

Helena Byrne is an amazing storyteller and what a beautiful singing voice too! This truly was a night to remember and one of the highlights of our Easter weekend in Dublin. I have to disagree with Haute Hippie, this was not really a night for conversation, it was a night for listening and being entertained. We enjoyed meeting people from... More

I wanted to get a feel for the Irish history as well as the folkstories by which they guided their actions. This event was amazing for it. Not only was I able to experience these stories, but we had a very nice meal and enjoyed local music. Recommended 100%.

This was the best night of my entire trip. My boyfriend and I took a tour of Ireland with CIE Tours and on our last night we were booked for the An Evening of Food, Forklore, and Fairies. This was by far one of the best nights of the trip for me. The stories were super entertaining, and the music... More

Had great fun at this fantastic dinner program! This was the big kick-off for our 10 day Ireland adventure and was well-worth the time and expense. We enjoyed the meal, entertainment and especially the storytelling and songs by Helena. She helped us enter into the mystery of Irish folklore which inspired us through the remainder of our visit. And to... More

Really excited for this evening before actually going after reading the reviews, disappointed to say after being I couldn't say I agreed with a lot of these reviews. The night involved being sat on tables with people from all round the world, we didn't get much conversation from our table despite trying several times. The food was OK but luke... More

Normally our guests get on very well with one another and enjoy sharing their own stories of their travels over dinner. I am sorry that this was not your experience . I will address the issue around luke warm food with the kitchen and my sincerest apologies about this. I am surprised you found the stories the kind of tales... More
