We really enjoyed the atmosphere upstairs at The Brazen Head and were enthralled learning about Ireland's history, myths and culture. We were impressed by Johnny's warm welcome as he met and greeted us and other guests, and continued to circulate and chat to various guests during his 'breaks'. This added to the atmosphere and made us feel part of the... More

Booked this night before we went to Dublin for a few days based on trip advisor reviews. It didn't disappoint a fantastic evening well run with great entertainment with story telling from Philip and music from a two piece band. The food and Guinness were excellent. Very good value for money.

We had to choose between the Literary Pub Tour and an Evening of Food, Folklore and Fairies. While me missed out on the Pub Tour we came away very happy with our decision. The evening is held at the Brazen Head, one of the oldest pubs in Dublin. It is charming and the food was very good. The service was... More

It is difficult to impart such passion, pure and ultimate intelligence and FUN that you will have to match the likes of Mr. Ollie Grace, and his fantastically lyrical styling on the history of Ireland. Mr. Grace is the apotheosis of the modern day bard, keeping his audience riveted to their seats, with much laughter and much more knowledge! Ollie... More

The food and beer were good. We traveled with two teenagers, and they would have preferred more choices on the set menu, but everyone liked what they got. The storyteller was excellent!

Fantastic evening, lovely food, great atmosphere, interesting stories the host had everyone's attention throughout and the music was really good well worth the money. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn a little bit more about Irish folklore in an informal setting!

Friends recommended we hear the story teller spin her tales and this Helen did so very well. A beautiful singing voice and wonderful, image provoking tales. We can definitely recommend you hear her speak. The pub is special because it is so old, I would have liked to have been told our family of 5 would have been put on... More

while I am delighted you enjoyed the folklore and storytelling I am sorry that you had some issue with the drink service and will address this with the wait staff. Normally we have guests sat on large tables of 12 people so they can interact with other guests and maybe that night your party of 5 was placed on the... More

We pre-booked this magic filled evening of entertainment as part of my fathers 60th birthday celebrations. Good job we did as it was a sold out evening. 5 long tables filled the room and communal dining was the order of the day. A limited menu was offered but it had enough variety to suit everyones pallet. Drinks are ordered and... More

My husband and I had a really good time listening to Johnny talk about the legends and folklore of Ireland, and their basis in the history of the country. The food was excellent and the company around the table was very friendly. The live music and accompanying banter was a perfect complement to the end of the evening. Highly recommended.
