It was a great evening at the Brazen Head Inn. There was a nice selection of traditional Irish food, including a vegetarian option. I had the beef stew and... More

Fantastic time, exceeded our expectations in every way! Philip was immediately engaging and made everyone feel like he was talking to them personally, I have rarely seen anyone connect with such a diverse audience so quickly, a credit to his genuineness. My 11 year old daughter was the only kid in the room, so we were a little concerned how... More

Myself and my mum attended this evening at the Brazen pub and throughly enjoyed every bit of it. It was the best activity we did on our trip as it gave you lots of interesting stories that helped get the real feel of old Ireland which was a change from all the facts and history you get from the other...

All I can say is that this was a VERY nice way to spend the evening in Dublin. The food was good, the storytelling was excellent and the music was very nice as well. I would recommend this if you have a free evening for sure.

We had a wonderful time at the Fairy Tale and Folklore evening at the Brazen Arms Pub. The food was good too! I recommend the evening. We learned a ton and found that we kept referring to various traditions and superstitions during the rest of our trip. I no longer stir my tea with a spoon I can you!!!

Friends told us they loved this, but wished they had done it before their last night in Ireland. We went on our first night, and we're so glad we did! It was a great time, very informative, and we enjoyed the rest of our time in Ireland that much more for having a better understanding of the history and culture.
