Good food and great music with the locals. The people were so nice and they had a two piece folklore band. Everyone was getting in on the singing at the Porterhouse Pub and having a great time. Of course the beer was great also. It was in the Temple Bar area.

But, we wrote, asked nicely and magically they found three very tightly squeezed spaces for... More

Johnny is an excellent storyteller and our three daughters, ages 10, 15 & 18, were spellbound by the stories and fairy... More

My adult daughter and I enjoyed a captivating evening of storytelling and music capped by good traditional Irish food and the lovely ambience of the Brazen Head. Talking to Philip Byrne, I realized the stories we heard were like the tip of the iceberg--his knowledge was broad and deep. We were getting the finest crystallized bits of that knowledge told...

It's amazing how he could keep the entire room captivated... More
