A great night in Dublin!

This was a great night and was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. Food was great, the music and storytelling were both fantastic, informative and entertaining.

Fantastic dinner and story telling
Dec 2019
I came here on holiday back in 2016 (this review is super delayed- i'm sorry, Phillip!)

This evening dinner of folklore and faire tales and music was just fantastic. It was a part of my itinerary set-up with Authentic Ireland tours through CIE Tours. I dare say, this was probably the BEST evening of the trip, and we were traveling around for about 8-days. It was also the last dinner my tour group had together before we parted ways.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this dinner, the story telling and the general company of all the people at this dinner.
I highly recommend it. I also really appreciated that there was an offer at the end to be sent reading recommendations about Irish Folklore and, that was the only email I got from Phillip. Generally, you sign up for one email and all of a sudden, you're on a re-occurring mailer, that wasn't the case with this establishment and i wanted to make sure to call that out because it was nice that they kept their word with no spam emailing.

Fantastic story telling over dinner. Food, alone, was good. Food, with folklore, tasted even better. Actually went several years ago and wanted to re-review.

Amazing & special evening
Sep 2019 • Friends
This was such a wonderful experience. The stories, the food, the music... what a great way to spend my last night in Ireland. Johnny was a captivating storyteller and we loved chatting with other travelers. Dinner was even better than I expected, and although the evening was very tourist-oriented I wouldn’t have missed this experience for anything.

Absolute must do when in Dublin
Mar 2020
This was by far our favorite event in Dublin. Johnny was such an engaging storyteller, relating notable historical events in Ireland and sharing some incredible stories from folklore. He interacted with the audience almost constantly to make sure everyone was comfortable and had everything we needed. The food was spectacular. You have your choice of various selections of traditional Irish fare, and all of it was fantastic! I unfortunately didn't catch the performers' names, but they played traditional Celtic folk songs that were a perfect compliment to the evening. I would absolutely do this again on another visit!

Thank You For Refund

Because of travel restrictions we were unable to visit Dublin. I sent a message and was refunded at once. I wanted folks to know about the wonderful service that was provided. We look forward to visiting as soon as we can.

An amazing night
Mar 2020
My husband and I decided to do this on our last night in Dublin and it was a great way to finish our trip. The storyteller did an amazing job of talking about the history of oral storytelling in Ireland and told us some common tales as well. In addition to a tasty meal (be aware drinks aren't included) there was about 15 minutes of live music during the main course which was lovely.

A Wonderful Evening in Dublin
Mar 2020
While visiting Dublin My wife and I wanted to enjoy the culture of this amazing country. We had plans to visit museums and we certainly did this and enjoyed our experiences. We were looking for a way to immerse ourselves in the culture to a greater extent, when we saw this add for an Evening with Folktales and Fairies. The night included a traditional Irish meal. The highlight of the evening was a series of stories and tales about the experiences and beliefs of everyday people in Ireland. For example we looked at the Great Famine from the perspective of the common people who suffered terribly. The highlight of the evening were the fairy stories and why a belief in the magical world has persisted in Ireland. Our story Teller was the Master of Ceremonies for the Evening. He began with some historical perspective and then periodically told some wonderful stories between courses. While we were eating our main course we were entertained by a pair of wonderful Irish musicians playing some traditional music. I highly recommend this experience, it was one of the highlights of our trip. Bill (Ct. U.S.)
