Johnny was an expert at spinning tales of the wee folk. We couldn't wait until the next session started. The stories and merriment at this pub were a highlight of our trip.

The food at this evening was lovely & the waiting staff were excellent. Ollie the storyteller and entertainer was fantastic. He made us laugh and had the whole room joining in with the Irish music and the Irish craic. A must!

Although obviously for tourists, this event is well worth taking in. Held on the second floor above the oldest pub in Dublin, 50 to 60 people are accommodated mostly at tables of 12 with a few smaller tables. The hearty three course meal of Irish favourites (the Guinness stew is particularly good) is interspersed with story telling and music. Stories... More

We found this listing for a night of Irish storytelling and songs on a brochure of literary Dublin. When I found out it was in the oldest (from the 12th c.?) pub in Dublin, I knew we had to go! The food was so tasty and the service was excellent. On the night we went, the show was sold out... More

This was a great evening. The food was good and plentiful, the service was excellent, the music was fine, and most importantly, our host, Phillip, was a true font of fairy information and fantasy. We thought this was one of the highlights of our Dublin experience. Thanks so much!

We booked this on a recommendation from the tour company we booked the trip through, and are we ever glad we did. Great food, great service, great company. One of the best all around experiences of our trip.

The food was excellent! The storyteller definitely made you laugh and also was able to get the audience to participate throughout the night. I'm glad I did this my first night, made it a carefree evening.

This event was recommended to me by several people. I was glad I went to experience a little bit of everything Irish in one evening. The stories were animated and entertaining. Large, tasty portions of traditional Irish fare were served and the service was great. The live music was a nice touch. I never felt bored and people of all... More

We found out about this from The Brazen Head website. The format of the evening is a three course meal with history/folklore/music in between courses. The history (mainly about the potato famine) was told very deftly and the stories/folklore were enchanting. Perhaps could've done with a bit more story telling? We sat at a round table with a group of... More
