This was the best night of my entire trip. My boyfriend and I took a tour of Ireland with CIE Tours and on our last night we were booked for the An Evening of Food, Forklore, and Fairies. This was by far one of the best nights of the trip for me. The stories were super entertaining, and the music... More

Had great fun at this fantastic dinner program! This was the big kick-off for our 10 day Ireland adventure and was well-worth the time and expense. We enjoyed the meal, entertainment and especially the storytelling and songs by Helena. She helped us enter into the mystery of Irish folklore which inspired us through the remainder of our visit. And to... More

Really excited for this evening before actually going after reading the reviews, disappointed to say after being I couldn't say I agreed with a lot of these reviews. The night involved being sat on tables with people from all round the world, we didn't get much conversation from our table despite trying several times. The food was OK but luke... More

Johnny was a spellbinding storyteller, and I learned a lot about Ireland's history and culture as well as its vibrant folklore. The music was pretty darn enjoyable too. Setting was charming, and the food was good. 10/10 night, would absolutely recommend to anyone who visits Dublin.

Very good meal. We were on a table of Americans and that was interesting. Would have liked a little more music perhaps and a bit less folklore as although we loved PHILLIPS fairytelling, the music was also fab.

This was an evening of good food and fantastic storytelling! Our host and storyteller was Philip who really brought Irish folklore and history to life. He was very engaging and made everyone feel so welcome. During dinner, Irish musicians played excellent, and fun music, making sure everyone got involved. The food is quite good for a group dinner and beer,... More

You will be guaranteed a very enjoyable Irish-themed evening leaving you with a warm heart. You will learn the history of the Jameson whiskey tradition without any regalia. If you like, you can enjoy a truly Irish meal with truly splendid entertainment that I totally recommend. Believe-me it will not let you down!

Our dinner, complete with storytelling and Irish music, at the Brazen Head Pub (Ireland's oldest pub) was a great finale to what had already been a fun and entertaining seven days ol touring Ireland. Master storyteller Philip Byrne held you captivated and hoping he would go on a bit longer. Clearly an enchanted evening- but what else would you expect... More

Helena was a fantastic storyteller as well as singer. My husband, daughters, and I all ordered the Guinness stew and it was delicious, as was the rest of the meal. Arrived at the Brazen Head early and had some drinks downstairs-awesome old pub. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Dublin. Well worth the money.

This is a pleasant if slightly bland and heavily tourist geared Irish pub experience. A little expensive but pretty good all round.
