Owner description: Taylors Three Rock is a rambling farmhouse pub with the largest thatched roof in Ireland soaring to over 50 feet.The Panoramic view and rural setting of Taylor's Three Rock makes this one of the most idyllically set public houses in Dublin. It is home to Dublin's Irish Cabaret which is Irelands longest running cabaret with the legendary Noel V Ginnity along with West End Star Rob Vickers who returns to Ireland having just played Val Jean in Les Miserables. Award winning Irish dancers, superb musicians and delicious Irish traditional food.

Our family of four went for an evening dinner show here. The musicians, dancers and staff were exceptional. Thankfully, the preformers were skilled at getting the audiance involved, so before we knew it we were singing along to fun chorus' and being dazzled by the talent of the dancers. I would say this was our best dinner experience for the whole trip.

Taylors is actually a little bit outside of Dublin in the hills, takes about 20 mins to get there. I believe there are a lot of tour companies that put on buses for this. We went on our own as we were bringing some American friends.

You are supposed to be there for about 6:30 but we were very late, the staff were great though and really made us feel comfortable. There are 3 choices for starters and main. I had the soup and the chicken wrapped in bacon which were both great, filling and the portion sizes were big, apple pie and Irish coffee were also included in the price.

The area we were in was a big function room with a stage at the front with a bar near the door, the tables were set up banqueting style in long rows. The price of the meal & entertainment was €45 and then the drinks on top of that. The bar man was very generous with my wine and just topped up the glass (no measuring it)

The show started about 8 with some Irish dancing and then a band came on to play the typical familiar Irish tunes with some original ones of their own (you can buy their CD after, get them to sign it too) There was a break and then there was more Irish dancing and more of the band. It took a bit of time for the place to warm up and I think that was more to do with the crowd there as they seemed a bit quiet, in fairness to the band they were trying to get some interaction from the crowd. As everyone warmed up the atmosphere got better and there was even some interaction with the locals that had popped in & sat at the bar. The Americans loved it as this was their first time in Ireland and they got to see some great Irish dancing

We went in November and when we were chatting to the barman he said that during the summer season they use the bigger upstairs room and have singers and a comedian as well as the band and dancers. So maybe that’s a better time to go

After the show finished around 10 sh the buses then gathered everyone up to take back. We stayed on and went into the main bar, there was a guy playing a guitar and a couple of singers singing old & new tunes which was good, plus we were able to chat to some locals which was great & the Americans loved it

Overall I really enjoyed the night and was pleasantly surprised as we were only going because of our US friends and I was expecting a really tacky Irish thing, which it definitely wasn’t. So if you’re a tourist and want to experience some Irish culture then I would say to definitely go

We went to this event, offered as an optional, with a Globus tour. The food was good; the entertainment was outstanding. The musicians and dancers had their art perfected. The lady vocalist has a beautiful voice, but the one drawback to her performance was the accompaniment. It was TOO LOUD! Please Taylor’s, tell the “sound guy” to set the volume to “accompaniment” not “main feature” so her talent can be enjoyed.

Percy Grainger’s (he was an Aussie) “Irish Tune from County Derry” (a/k/a “Oh Danny Boy”) brought out the melancholy in more than one listener that evening, as did the male soloist’s rendition of “Grace.”

Comedian Noel Ginnity had us in stitches. His timing was impeccable, his facial expressions were visual jokes and his stories far exceeded those of any late night TV monologue. I can usually remember jokes and re-tell them but Noel was telling them so fast, and I was laughing so hard, that I couldn’t “lock them in.” I did buy his book - he autographed it - but many of the jokes/stories he told that night were not in the book (darn!).

True, this venue may be “packaged tourist entertainment,” but the dinner theater experiences we have attended in the USA fit the same description.

Go. Enjoy. I rate it a 15.

This was by far the best night we had on our European trip . The service from the moment we arrived was very nice and the food was very tasty . The show was unexpectedly good , as we thought this was just another show on our journey . It was undersold to us ,as some of our group did not come .Well it was there loss unfortunately. The Irish dancing was outstanding and the comedian was very funny ,and the beautiful voices of the leading singers was breathtaking . You guys need to let all the tourists in Ireland in on this great show it,s phenomenal Great job to one and all .

I was with a CIE tour and we went to Taylors on the last day of our tour. Everything CIE had set up was first class, except this evening. The entertainment was great, but the food was awful, especially the main course, which was Irish beef. It was brown and tough and inedible. The dessert served was likewise awful. A waste of time on our last night in lovely Ireland, having to eat this junk. Think twice before you head to Taylor's.
