We spent our last night at the Brazen Head for "An Evening of Food, Folklore and Fairies." What a great way to end our trip. Johnny Daly was an excellent storyteller & gave us real insight into the Irish frame of mind and important aspects of their lives and history. The evening was broken up nicely with great food and...

Lovely evening with great food. Some of the staff were focused on some policies very closely while others were more relaxed and "going with the flow." The story teller "Johnny," was simply wonderful, though.

A really good evening had by all! Food was tasty, had Potato & leek soup to start, bacon & cabbage for mains and apple pie for pudding, all really good quality and very very filling! Story teller was very good and kept you engaged. Music was fun and involved a little of crowd participation. The pub itself is a lovely... More

The evening was amazing! From the food and drinks to the amazing storytelling regarding fairies and folklore was spectacular. Whether you are traveling to Ireland (as we were) or just want a night of fun to learn about some of the heritage (as my cousin whom we traveled with was) it was great. The food was authentic and delicious. I... More

I agree with all the other reviewers. This is great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We actually expected the story telling to be full of Irish jokes but it was all the better for being an entertaining description of Irish history, heritage and culture. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food all washed down... More

My husband and I enjoyed a great night of story telling, food and music back in 2011 which was our first visit to Dublin. We are returning to Dublin again this April 2016 and have already made our reservation for another great evening. The food was traditional and tasted yummo, the storytelling was fascinating and funny and of course the... More

The evening of food, folklore and fairies was one of the highlights of our trip. Johnny was a wonderful host and the entire room was captivated by his storytelling. From the food to the location and the music everything was great! Afterward we stayed for a couple of pints of Guinness in the old Brazen Head Pub and listened to... More

Good music, nice friendly staff, good food. Only bad thing was that my stew was so hot I burned my tongue after letting it sit 20 minutes. Other than that, a ton of fun!

I went here in the cold months of December and had the most wonderful experience. The pub itself is beautiful and gives off a happy atmosphere. The food was absolutely wonderful and made me feel happy and sleepy as I dozed off listening to the stories from our excellent story teller. The stories themselves were interesting and captivating, and the... More

A great fun family night out learning all sorts about Ireland and the Irish, along with good food, some great sing/clap a long songs and a convivial atmosphere in a very old and interesting pub. The tables are quite large so you get to sit with and chat to new people as part of the evening too and it all... More
