I've always adored folk stories and local folklore and that's what this is. The meal was lovely and it was great to meet the people on my table as I was a solo traveller. The storyteller did an amazing job and the music was very fun. I would 100% do this again when I'm next in Dublin!

Absolutely delicious food, I would say the price is worth it for the three-course meal alone (and that's coming from a university student!) but the stories and music made it a magical evening. My sister and I felt honoured to be there.

Great idea but the room was jam packed the door had ot be opened due to the heat and the noise from outside made it hard to hear anything. First part of storytelling was interesting the rest was a bore, tried hard to stay awake and the music was a lame attempt. Only for food I dont know if it... More

Dublin was the last portion of our honeymoon around Ireland and Northern Ireland. The evening of storytelling was a great way to put a new perspective to everything we had seen and learn during our trip. Michael is a very exceptional storyteller and is very captivating. We appreciate the email sent the next day with all the references. The food... More

Very fun night. The storytelling was great. Even my 11 year old enjoyed it. Was nicely spaced out between meal courses.

Helena's gift of painting pictures on your mind will leave you wanting more. Attending this delightful evening at the Brazon Head proves that even after six trips to this magical place I can still be surprised, delighted and taught new and wonderful things about Ireland. Do yourself a favor and spend an evening with Helena.

The storyteller has a beautiful voice, and her singing was the highlight of the evening. The folktales and "fairy" stories were interesting and enjoyable to my husband, but because I've studied Irish history a great deal, I found the stories historically inaccurate and whitewashed with political correctness. The food was simply average. The building itself where the event occurred was... More
