So it's not often you get an opportunity to go to an evening and be so engaged unexpectedly . This was an amazing choice and turned out to be a real highlight . Guinness is the number 1 visitor attraction this should be number 2

I wasn't too sure what to expect when ten of us booked "An Evening of Food, Folklore and Fairies". We were taken to a cozy room full of people from all over the world and seated at our own table. Between the different traditional Irish courses we were entertained with wonderful Irish tales of the "potatoe" and the mythical fairies!... More

We spent our first night in Ireland at Food, Folklore and Fairies. There couldn't have been a better way to start our trip. The evening is spent in a cozy room, getting to meet other travelers from around the world while eating delicious traditional Irish food & drinks. That alone would have made for a great evening, but the stories... More

Helena is a WONDERFUL story teller, her enthusiasm and knowledge keeps you captivated. The waitstaff is attentive but doesn't hover, and the food was above par. I definitely recommend.

A very interesting evening being brought into the magical and historical world of the Oirish and their Fairies. I hadn't before appreciated the significance of those fairies thinking this was just a fun game of the modern Irish. But no, they're part of the world's superstitious past when little of reality, as we have become to know it, existed. So... More

My husband and I spent 2 grand weeks in Ireland this past October. When friends ask what the highlights were, our evening of food, folklore and fairies with Johnny Daly is at the very top of our list. We enjoyed a wonderful, warm welcome in a relaxing atmosphere, got some helpful tips from other tourists and learned a great deal.... More

We took a side trip to Ireland for just 48hrs. Not knowing anything about the country, we thought an evening with the folklore & fairies would enlighten our understanding of the area. The food was excellent. Best stew(Irish stew) that I ever had. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the music and story telling was very entertaining. You may also... More

Our storyteller was lovely, engaging and very friendly. The musicians were surly, hilarious and everything you'd want in a pair of old Irish coots. This is a must-attend dinner. We had a great time and the food was delicious. Traveler note: arrive an hour or so ahead of time to enjoy a pint downstairs in the Brazen Head pub. The... More
