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.

The quality of the entertainment (Irish musicians and Irish dancer) was good all though not as "entertaining" as expected, but the quality of the food that was included in the ticket was less than average. It was supposed to be a typical Irish meal, but what came out on the plates were not much to write home about....

An enjoyable evening of authentic Irish music and dance and a good meal to go with it. The performers are talented, entertaining and energetic interspersing storytelling with vocals and instrumentals and outstanding solo Irish dancing. Dinners include a choice of starters, entrees and desserts. The venue is small and intimate, everyone is close to the entertainment. This is a good... More

We recently spent three days in Dublin and shows the show for our last night before heading out to the country. What an enchanting evening of music dance stories and lots of craic! Recommended for the entire family and evening of fun for all.

Took our daughter for her 12th birthday. The food was excellent and Annmarie, who runs the restaurant, was a joy! The show exceeded my expectations! The musicians engage the crowd and the Irish dance was a fantastic bonus. Every seat is a great one with about 55 people in attendance. Awesome experience!

I had dinner at the restaurant, and the meal was great. What made the night though, was the entertainment after dinner. The music was lively, the band was engaging and humorous, and it made for a great night out! I would definitely return!

We are from London and met some friends from America in Dublin for a holiday. Wanting to experience a bit of Irish music and food we booked in for dinner and entertainment with The Irish House Party. We started upstairs with dinner, (which was lovely!) then were sent downstairs to the theatre for the main event. The music and dancing... More

The Irish house party promotes itself as being closer to a real and traditional Irish music experience, as opposed to the big shows. I enjoy both, but The Irish House Party lives up to its advertising. I thoroughly enjoyed it -start to finish. I also learned much more than I expected. The traditional food was very good and the entertainment... More

We went on a Saturday night and we only went for the after dinner show so can't comment on the food. We were greeted by a nice women at the bar who stated it was running 10 mins late due to the food and that she would take us to the room in a minute. We went into the room... More

Hi Ann-Marie, thanks for your review. I have looked into this for you. The reason the show began 10 minutes late was that a group of 15 arrived unexpectedly for dinner on that particular evening. We decided to accommodate them as they were really keen to experience the house party and were heading home the next day. This was the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at the Irish House Party. The food was wonderful & our servers were very personable. After dinner we went into the theatre for the show. There were 4 musicians, one of which also demonstrated irish dancing. They were great with interacting with the crowd. It was a wonderful way to start our trip off introducing... More

Even with all the great reviews, this was still a great surprise. The dinner was okay but the music and dancing was awesome. This was one of the highlights to our trip.
