A group of us recently traveled to Ireland for a week-long stay, and easily one of our best experiences was a visit to the Brazen Head for dinner and storytelling. The musicians were engaging, the food was excellent, and our Storyteller, Helena, was the highlight of the evening. She was absolutely enchanting. We were all thrilled with our evening.

This was a very atmospheric evening which we all enjoyed - a group with ages 11, 14 and 2 adults. The food was classic Irish food - nothing fancy but filling and appropriate for the evening and the stories we were told. The storytelling was captivating, beautifully told and interspersed with songs. She held our attention throughout. The music was... More

A great evening of fun stories with Johnny our wonderful story teller. We could have listened to him all night. Very entertaining, and very enjoyable. Thank you to all that made it such a great night.

This ended up being an entertaining evening, including storytelling, Irish music and food. The Brazen Head has always been a favorite to visit and this event made the visit this time around extra special. The stories provided insight into the Irish people, their history and legends. Recommended for all ages.

We just happened upon this venue while walking around Dublin and fortunately took the last four tickets available to this great dinner experience. The history of Ireland and the potato famine, stories of fairies, leprachauns and banshees, live entertainment of irish songs and a great meal made for a very memorable evening. HIGHLY recommend this and would do it again!

We extremely enjoyed our evening with Johnny the storyteller. He was so engaging with wonderful stories of life in Ireland and folklore. We learned of the fairy trees and their importance and were able to see one the next day😉😊. The music was so fun with sing alongs and the man was hilarious. Thank you again Johnny!

Unlike others, we did not enjoy the food. It was quite mediocre. It was edible, just not great. Our storyteller was very nice, but lost my interest. The music was the best part. It is nice to get a chance to meet other tourists.

Our story teller was so enchanting! He brought the stories to life. I loved the history behind the art or storytelling as well. The musicians were a riot! Such great music and camaraderie. Loved talking to my table mate from Austria. The food was great and plentiful. Remember to take euros and have a Guinness or your favorite Irish libation.

I was in Dublin last week for a work trip and we decided that this would be a fun last night dinner to do. It exceeded all of our expectations and was the highlight of our time in Dublin. Whether you are old or young, with friends or family, this is an evening to remember. Ollie was a fantastic storyteller... More

Despite our reservations, this turned out to be the surprise hit of the trip! Helena was our host and she was very engaging and lovely, and had such a haunting voice.
