We attend this evening event on July 12, 2022. It was FANTASTIC. We learned a lot about the history of Ireland, in addition to how some of the folklore was created. It was an excellent evening. However, to prepare, there was a guitar player there also singing Irish songs. It would be useful to learn the words of Molly Malone prior to attending, so you can participate in a rousing sing along.

Wonderful experience for my husband and me and our two teen daughters. Great history, folklore and music. Our storyteller Johnny was so engaging and really connected the dots on the history of everyday life in Ireland as well as the legend and lore around fairies, banshees, etc. He kept things moving, dinner was good with excellent service and the musician who entertained us during the main course was also amazing. Nothing else quite like it in Dublin!

Get in fast, last shows are 15 July 22. I was told they lost their venue and will look to start again next year in a new venue.

Rather boring, not as advertised or seen in YouTube videos. Just 1 guy talking in the dark in the corner about faeries, potatoes, and storytelling. No musicians, and mediocre food.

I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your evening with us. Unfortunately this was the one night we did not have a musician and I am sorry if this took away from your experience of the show . My apologies once again and I hope you enjoyed your time in Dublin

This was a wonderful evening, and Ollie was fantastic. He was informative as well as funny. This was the second time I’ve attended, first did 5 years ago, andI was excited to return with my husband so he could experience it. He loved it.

The Brazen Head is a really fun location-but I will offer that the food for this event was very very very mediocre. I know the folklore dinners are not going to continue at Brazen Head, sadly, so perhaps the restaurant felt no need to make the food shine? It was much better food 5 years ago.

This said, I highly recommend.

This was the second time going to the Storyteller. This time it was a new storyteller. The presentation is very well done, and is presented within the context of Irish history. The food is very good also. A very nice evening. I'd recommend going.

Just perfect to have a wonderful full Irish experience (food, storytelling, drink, and music) in just a few hours. Can't give the storyteller more praise. His understated style had us hanging on every word and meeting other travelers at our table was just the foam on top of the Guinness. Thanks for a great time!
