My husband and I are currently staying in Dublin and have been to the show twice. We very much look forward to going again. The storyteller, Helena, is fascinating, giving so much information about Ireland and the Irish way of life, in such an entertaining, engaging way that you never want her to stop. The Irish music is wonderful and... More

My wife and I and our two sons, ages 14 and 11 really enjoyed this experience. It was an opportunity to hear from an Irish storyteller, a seanachi. What an enjoyable way to spend the nite. In addition to the storytelling, there was fine Irish music and good food. It was also an opportunity to meet people from all around... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Dublin! What an incredible storyteller is Johnny! Such a delightful evening! A great way to learn of the history, the folklore, and the reasons why so many have Irish descent! The music and the food were incredible, too! Very fun!!

This was my favorite part of the trip. Helena was our story teller, I could have listened to her all night long. Her actions, the way she told stories made you feel like you were right there being a part of it. Never wanted her to stop. We had some Irish musicians/singers that were very entertaining at making us laugh,... More

This event is a unique opportunity to have lovely food and a pint with great company listening to really interesting stories between courses. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to locals and visitors alike. It's like a night at the theatre, restaurant and pub all rolled into one!

This was an amazing introduction to the Irish Culture. Our group's story teller was named Johnny Daly and he was simply brilliant. Full of life and charisma, he kept our group engaged and entertained from his opening words. I highly recommend everyone to take part in this evening of great food, beautiful and magical folklore, but most of all...the fairies!!... More

A wonderful evening. The food was good and the service excellent. The story telling weaved it's way through Irish history creating yarns of mirth and merriment and sometimes downright devilry! The beautiful lilting and audience participation made for great entertainment. Not the cheapest show in town but well worth the price! (on the top floor of the pub so check... More

On our last evening in the city of Dublin, we treated ourselves to an evening of food, folklore and fairies. We had a lovely experience, which I'd definitly recommend. Ollie's story telling, singing and great interaction with the audience lead us into the world of fairies and leprechauns. Concerning the performance, we'd have loved for Ollie to share even more...

I booked this nyt for my 11 year old daughter and I, she thought that it was a great night. I must point out that I dint even know... More
