To be honest, we weren't quite sure what to expect when we reserved this evening of entertainment. We feared a tourist trap but couldn't have been more mistaken. Helena, her beautiful voice and her musician friends held an entire room in thrall and taught us a lot along the way about Irish folk stories and traditions. And the traditional Irish... More

Visited Dublin with University friends - we stayed 3 nights and on our final night booked in for folklore and fairies and even now we can't stop talking about it. When we arrived we realised we were the youngest group there (a group of girls in their early 20s) but that did not spoil our enjoyment. The host for the... More

The first thing you need to know is that this is not an evening where you will get a stage show with singing and dancing and flashing lights and storytellers dressed in stage Irish costumes. The evening is divided into three sections. In the first section the host/storyteller will give a talk about the food that the Irish ate, the... More

This story telling dinner was our finale in Dublin. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Ollie was our storyteller and very entertaining! He kept the night rolling and before we knew it, 3 hrs had gone by. I wasn't sure what to expect when I made our reservations. I had found the flyer and saw it had great reviews on Trip Advisor... More

This was such a fun night. Helena was such a fantastic storyteller and singer. Her stories were so much fun and she emailed us more stories as well a suggested book list to allow the magic to continue. Thank you Helena for a very special evening!

The place has a very warm atmosphere but most of all Ollie is the best host, story teller, singer and performer there is! I had a smile on my face during the whole evening and especially during Ollie's performance! Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening!

I came across this storytelling night by accident when looking for something to do while staying in Dublin. As a solo traveller I was lucky to sit with three others who were also by themselves - different ages, all with Irish heritage and who wanted to find out more about the history and folklore of Ireland. It was a really... More

Just a couple of things that I wished I knew going into this: - We're in our forties. Let's just say we were a minority in the room for this event age wise. This is definitely an over 60 type crowd from what we had. Friendly obviously, but seemed like they were perfectly content listening (and talking extra loud when... More

Many thanks for your comment and I am delighted you felt the show was interesting. We really try to help guests discover Ireland's rich culture of folklore and storytelling during this unique irish cultural experience and I am sorry you felt it was more like a history lesson . I must apologise for the room being so warm for you... More
