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.

I went to the dinner and show option recently to try and get a taste of some Irish music that was a bit less kitschy. The show was excellent, a wide variety of songs with explanations about the various Irish instruments and dances. The food was ok but could have been better.

Great night had by all of our group of 16 ladies. We had a lovely 3 course dinner first and then moved in to the "theatre" for the show. It was a great mix of getting the audience involved in singing, together with learning about traditional music and dancing. Great night out and good value for money.

This is a show not a session & all the better for it. It's an evening of music, dance & humour. Great.

Enjoyable night. We sat with a famiy at our table we had never met, and it turned out the couple and their daughter were very nice and we enjoyed laughter and conversation with them. It took a while for our food to come out but the atmosphere was great and our server Ann Marie was attentive. The food was ok.... More

We were expecting a dancing/drinking party. So we were very surprised to find the average age of the public was 65 and up. It's a pity you have to sit on a chair while watching the band, because they were great entertainers. People should be able to dance to their music. The food looked at what they serve in a... More

We visited Dublin and wanted to experience some authentic Irish music as a family, did not want to drag our 10 year old to a number of pubs during the evening so booked this. It was a great night of music demonstration, laughter, expert dancing, the highlight of our visit to this great city. These talented musicians played a number... More

We were very let down by our visit to Irish House Party. When we arrived, we were seated at a table with a family of four. There were two small children at the table who kept climbing under the table and through our legs to get places which was very disrupting. I realize that this is not the fault of... More

Hi Stacy, Apologizes that you had this experience. Can you email me on info@theirishhouseparty.com I would like to find out the date you attended so I can look into this further for you.

We arrived at the Irish House Party at about 6:15 because it said be there by 6:30 and we didn't want to miss our starters. We got there and sat in the Den Bar and everyone else that was waiting for the party to begin was there as well. The man checked us in and escorted everyone to the room... More

Hi Darnell, Thanks for your review. Firstly I'm glad that you enjoyed the show and that you thought our food was delicious. I have looked into what happened with your seating arrangements. The reason you had to wait 10 minutes was because you hadn't booked as a group on our website. There was a booking for two and a separate... More

My husband and I visited the Irish House Party at the end of March. We had a great time! The dinner before the show was good, but the music and dancing after was by far our favorite part of the evening! We loved the songs, the comedy and the different types of dancing they showed us.
