Great fun at The Brazen head!

We were staying close by so stopped there on the way to dinner. Would have loved to stay longer - people were having a great time. The staff was wonderful - the bartenders helpful and loads of fun. They had sparkling wine by the glass - loved that!

Food, stories and music was great! Totally worth paying to go to the folklore and storytelling dinner. Not somewhere to go if you want to immerse yourself in local Irish life, but easily one of my favorite places on our trip through Ireland.

We enjoyed the friendly and upbeat atmosphere at Ireland's oldest pub, and the beer garden was especially enjoyable on a sunny day.

Great food and fun program on Ireland Folk Lore. Had a three course dinner which included an entertaining program on Ireland's history which discussed superstitutions and their origins.

Went here because of the history of the pub. It's super cute inside and out. Food was solid pub food as well. It was a game day, so it was quite festive!

Visit this bar either early or late in the day. You will thank me. It's popular. Who wouldn't want to go to the oldest pub? The atmosphere is great. Worth the visit for sure.

Friendly and cozy place in Dublin. The food was good, the staff was nice and the only thing I would have to complain about is that it was slightly cramped. Overall, I would recommend this place.

Loved it! Very cool atmosphere. Lots of Americans there. Had excellent stew and a pint. Noisy, crowded, but I loved it! Hope to go back someday!

What time we had! A four course meal interspersed with dialogue and song. A delightful lass entertained and informed the audience with Irish Tales and Folklore. Then a duo sang Irish songs to the beat of a guitar and violin respectively. Great night out, good food, even better company.

We enjoyed the "Evening of Food, Fokelore, and Fairies." The storyteller, Helena Byrne, was very good and very entertaining!
