Great value for money. Thoroughly entertaining evening with Philip our storyteller. Good food served with stories, folklore and music in between courses. A great way to spend an evening in Dublin.

After visiting my family in Dublin dozens of times for many years I thought it was about time to hear some real stories - mythology, folk tales and so on, and the website lead you to believe that this is the authentic real-deal. However I was very disappointed as this was not the case. We heard just 1 story at... More

I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy tour evening with us. The evening is very much focused on giving visitors to Ireland a fascinating insight into our rich culture of folklore and storytelling. As you say being Irish you might have know many of the topics we covered already but we do find that most Irish... More

My two sisters (23 and 9) and I went to this yesterday (14th April) and had a brilliant time. The evening is nicely mixed between food, stories and music so you're never left hungry or without entertainment. I can't recommend this enough.

Our host Helena is utterly captivating, she is an extraordinarily story teller and singer. The musicians who play when you wait/eat for your main meal were great, they were funny and lighthearted. The food was traditional Irish, just like my Irish granny would make. The only issue was one of the serving staff, a man with a pony tail was... More

Enjoyed this evening. Story telling from Philip was very interesting. Only part I did not enjoy so much was the music. Could be done with a traditional fiddle player or similar. Would recommend though- good value for money. Loved the pub it was held in.

The only reason we booked this was due to the comments on Trip Advisor and I am so pleased as it is something we would not have found. By the way we were two late 20's guys with hangovers from a heavy Saturday night and still found it a great experience. Helena the speaker for the night was fantastic and... More

We cancelled our planned evening at the comedy crunch and came here instead because it was so recommended. Pretty disappointing... It was educational but it dragged on for much too long. The service isn't the greatest. It was extremely slow and your glass will sit empty for a very long time. My husband was sweating and unhappy as it was... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the evening with us . You mentioned that the room was very hot and we are actually at the moment addressing this with regard to improved air conditioning being installed in the room . When you feel uncomfortable a night can feel longer . The evening involves three 25 minute... More

This was our second visit in two years to the Brazen Head for the Food, Folklore and Fairies experience, yes, it is that good! The welcome we received was excellent, the staff were friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. Our host on both visits was Johnny, he is a truly engaging story teller in the old tradition. The food... More
