We really enjoyed the Evening of Food, Folklore and Fairies. The food was delicious and the stories and songs enchanting. We also loved the venue. The Brazen Head is a great place to spend time before and after the event. Highly recommend it!

We had a fabulous nights entertainment with Philip and his fairies.There was good food, good company, foot tapping music and some cracking folklore tales. It felt like a peek into the authentic Ireland of yesteryear. I can't recommend this event highly enough.

Johnny Daly has struck on a great way to entertain and bring some history together, his stories and folklore is a wonderful way to spend an evening in Ireland's oldest pub and the meal was very good and the service was grand!

We had a wonderful evening of food, stories, and music. Our 3 generation group was seated with 2 other 3 generation families who were excellent dinner companions. The host was gracious, entertaining, knowledgeable, and funny. All of us enjoyed our 3 course dinners. I highly recommend this introduction to Ireland.

What fun! We were met at the door by Johnnie, who greeted us, checked us in and offered us several seating options (sit with a group or by ourselves). We chose a table for two. The wait-staff were very friendly and brought our Guinness straight away. Johnnie was our story-teller for the evening and he was interesting, funny and enlightening.... More

I loved this show. The food was so, so (apple dessert, not good), but the entertainment was great. Cudos to the servers having to go up & down those stairs. The mashed potatoes were the best I had the whole visit to Ireland.

I went in with a hostile attitude, from when I saw the bill on my card after booking over the phone, $150 NZD for me and my friend!! :O However the night was not a disappointment at all! As our wonderful storyteller transported us to a different time with charming tales of how the common Irish people lived back in... More

Was mildly concerned about how the kids(8 and 11) would like it, but they were enthralled. They are still singing "De Luain De Mairt, De Luain De Mairt, De Luain De Mairt, De Ceadaoin!"

This was a really fun night to learn a little bit about Irish culture and history. The stories and music are fantastic, and the group seating is a fun way to meet other travelers. The food itself isn't the main attraction, but is hearty and traditional. Would definitely recommend.
