The food was simple, hearty Irish fare - the Irish was stew was particularly delicious - and each course was punctuated by entertainment. I had feared that this would be a tacky, slightly uncomfortable... More

A recommendation from our tour's bus driver, this was an excellent evening! The staff was wonderful! I was very pleased with the food, especially considering the size of our group. I enjoyed every story, song, and laugh. Well worth the price! GREAT way to learn more about Ireland and fall in love with this magical land and lovely people!

Thoroughly enjoyable evening and the food was excellent! My husband was worried this was going to be a tacky, tourist experience, but he came out saying it was the highlight of his holiday!...certainly one of the best meals we've had in Dublin. We were made to feel so welcome and learnt about Irish history and culture. The waitresses were very... More

What an extremely interesting evening my family and I had while visiting Brazen Head. The food and drink were great, story telling was excellent and the musicians were characters! Highly entertaining evening.

Brazen Head, where I had the best tasting pints of Guiness in the world! The evening of Irish storytelling was incredibly educational while feasting on exceptional Irish fare. Helena, our storyteller, was charming and intelligent, not too mention her singing voice was magical! We also enjoyed the wit of the two folk musicians and had so much fun singing along!... More

First and foremost, I must talk to you about Johnny. When I was panicked because our flight into Dublin was delayed by a few hours and I didn't think that we would be able to make the dinner, Johnny was very accommodating and moved our reservation to the following night which happened to be my birthday. When we arrived at... More

The story teller did a great job at keeping us all engaged. The musicians were very entertaining and interactive. The food was very good. I had the Steak Stew (I forget the official name) and it was a good choice. I recommend getting there early so you can enjoy the outdoor seating downstairs before going upstairs for the evening.

The highlight of the evening is the wonderful, fun, entertaining, and educational stories. Helena was our storyteller, and she did a marvelous job. She also has a fabulous singing voice. She managed to keep our 17 year old son enthralled with the stories, and he is still talking about them. The muscians who come in are very good also, and... More

Ollie was the "singer, musician, comedian, and awesome story teller who made this event one of the highlights of our trip to Dublin. We got a little bit of everything in a couple of hours -- as well as a great dinner. If you don't have a lot of time to spend in Dublin -- put this on your list... More

What a wonderful evening- Johnny was a great storyteller and so passionate about what he does. We enjoyed learning about Ireland and have such a a love for the Irish people- in part to Johnny. Our family (including 11 year old child) recommend this outing to all!
