I can't speak for the other storytellers, but Johnny was fantastic. We learned so much and I definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to know about Irish folklore. The musicians were great as well and very funny.

It is at Brazen Head just outside of Temple Bar. Google maps says it’s about a 20 minute drive and a 50 minute walk from where your staying.
