This was a great evening. The food was very good. The area in the pub was comfortable, clean and everyone could hear and participate in the evening. The story teller was excellent in her material, delightful with her voice and great with the audience interaction....More

We spent a delightful evening at the Brazen Head pub, listening to Phillip give a history of the oral tradition in Ireland and of course, spinning some yarns himself. Dinner and some musical interludes were part of the evening. Phillip was both informative and entertaining...More

Helena is enchanting, such a great story teller! Her stories, told in a delightful Irish accent, were captivating, informative, amusing and just very entertaining. You could have heard a pin drop while she was talking, because everyone was spellbound, except for when they were laughing....More

The show starts at 7:00 pm, Be sure to book particularly in Summer months. enjoy
I booked this amazing looking evening for later on in the year 2017. Once paid it gave me a booking reference, I took a photo of the page as I could not print it out at the time but expected an email of confirmation. No email to confirm. So I just wanted to make sure I'm okay with my booking reference or photo of it. Some reassurance would be good. Thank you.
