Come visit us in our own home at The Lansdowne Hotel, a beautiful 18th century town house in Dublin and experience the very best of Irish music, dancing and fine food! The Irish House Party combines all the singing and dancing of a traditional Irish house party with a Dinner and Theatre experience. House guests are entertained by All Ireland Champion musicians and dancers but also learn about Irish music, dance and culture in a fun way. First our guests enjoy a delicious three course dinner in The Irish House Party Pub. Our restaurant offers Irish home style cooking with big flavoured traditional dishes. There is a full bar available selling a wide range of beverages. We also have an extensive wine list.After your dinner the host brings you into the parlor room for The Irish House Party show. Our venue creates an intimate and personal atmosphere where guests can meet and talk with the musicians and maybe even perform something themselves! A reservation is required for our show and private group bookings can be arranged for any day and time convenient to your group.

The music and jokes are copies of the musical pub crawl. The food was atrocious. Not a decent value at Landsdown Hotel. Hard to get to, rude desk clerk who was not interested in helping get a cab. Overall poor. Won't be back

Hi Maliea, Sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the house party. We were surprised because as you can see by our regular reviews our guests usually have a great time. We had no other complaints about the food on the night you attended. It’s a pity you did not bring any specific food complaint to the attention of our... More

This was a great way to end our stay in Ireland. I can't vouch for the quality of the meal since we just did the show, but the performance was top notch. Great music, comedy, and Irish dancing! We loved Fiona's broom dance. Thanks!

The music and dance show was very good! I was waiting to give my order for my food they brought everyone else's starter before taking my order! I felt the staff serving the food weren't on the ball for something that happens quite regularly.

We attended the House Party between Christmas and New Year with our twin sons, 7. I had booked the evening as we had seen some Irish dancing on our holiday in Florida and the boys were really keen to see the "real thing". I had read lots of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor but was still a little trepidatious... More

We had the meal first before the entertainment and cannot fault that at all. The choices were good and the staff very friendly and chatty. (Also had a couple of drinks in "The Den" downstairs first, very nice a friendly too. When the entertainment started it was enchanting. Jerry, Aileen and Eamonn (don't know if spelt correctly) were fantastic. The... More

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed your night, I will pass on your feedback to the staff and entertainers - I know they will appreciate it! Because we had a small group in that night you were treated to an acoustic un-plugged Irish House Party. For larger groups we do use some amplification but always strive for the authentic 'house party'... More

I booked a reservation for my fiancé and I, for a saturday night. Maybe because it was the end of october, there were no more than 30 people. For 45€, we had a 3 course meal and a show. The food was really tasty, I had beef in a guiness sauce which I recommend, it was yummy! The, we went... More

This was booked as a surprise by my girlfriend for my 30th during our trip to Dublin. It was a truly authentic experience and I didn't want it to end! A member of the band greeted us as we entered the Lansdowne Hotel then we were seated for our delicious 3 course meal...each dish was cooked to perfection. Then we... More

This event was unbelieveably great! In fact, the last sentence is an understatement as I'm having trouble articulating exactly how good it was. We were made to feel so very welcome at the Landsdowne. The host worked the room like a Trojan. We arrived early, so went downstairs to the 'local' and inbibed a Guinness for me, and a very... More

Going to the Irish House Party has been one of the very best things we have done visiting Dublin. We attended the show only, no dinner, but the show itself is absolutely worth going for. All performers are highly skilled and they all made it a fantastic evening. We will be happy to come back at a later time.
