We did the Bike Tour and House Party package. The House Party was OK. It has a great meal as part of the package, and the music was OK.

If you are going to be in Dublin you really should attend The Irish House Party. The food was very good and the show was excellent. I'm still singing 'The Wild Rover' after almost three weeks. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Started in a separate dining area in a historic hotel. It was more relaxed as we were seated in different alcoves, and not with the masses. It made for a more intimate dinner before the show. The meal was traditional type Irish fare that was well presented and quite tasty. We were then told when it was time to go... More

We had a couple of nights in Dublin and having already visited numerous times we were looking for something new to do. My sister had come across this attraction on an internet search and we decided to give it a go. The location was good as was the meal and with the opportunity to buy drinks at reasonable prices.

The dinner was delicious, the setting in a historic hotel was impressive, and the show of traditional Irish dancing and music was so great that we returned again on our last night in Ireland. We were not sure where we would like to eat, so the fact that food was included was helpful, but the dinner turned out to be... More

I wanted my ten year old to experience Irish music and a traditional meal in a pub. I found the Irish House Party show and dinner to be excellent. We absolutely loved everything about it and I'm including my son in this. He had a blast. I recommend it to anyone visiting Dublin to give it a try.

If you do one thing in Dublin - go watch this show and have the dinner as well. Food was delicious, service fantastic, drinks cheap, pub gorgeous with tons of Irish charm and the show was absolutely terrific! You must buy the CD too - for ten euros a bargain and such an amazing momento! Our little boy of 4... More

It was our last night in Ireland. We had been fortunate enough to luck into some great performances at the pubs in Dublin during our stay so we were really looking forward to a genuine house party atmosphere. The food and service were topnotch. I think our waitress was Ann Marie, but she may have been the best server I... More

Hi Terrence, thanks for your compliments about the food and service and for your feedback about the show. We were surprised to read that you were disappointed with the house party show itself as our guests usually love it. It may have been due to the fact that as you say, the crowd was so small on the night you... More

We looked at the other "big" Irish music & dance shows in town first & the venues looked pretty cheesy. The Irish House Party was a refreshing alternative! We enjoyed the dinner (although the service was a bit slow) but the show was the star of the evening!

Hi MilzRiechers. Thanks for the compliments. One of the main things we try to do is to create a proper intimate house party atmosphere where you can really appreciate the musicians performances. Glad you enjoyed it! More

I visited here on the 2nd August and the staff were lovely. Food was good and the chef was very friendly and helpful! In fact they made us feel right at home- I loved the show the guy who lead the songs was very funny and I enjoyed all the music. Very traditional so if you would like to learn... More
