Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The owner at our B&B recommended an evening of Irish storytelling, and what a great suggestion! Ollie Grace puts on a great one-man show. He draws in the audience with songs and tales about the people, culture and history of Ireland. He sent a follow-up list of books/resources that I truly appreciate. It's an evening well spent when you attend the show. Good fun or, as the Irish say, good craic!

A brilliant one man show. Great humour and lovely songs to compliment a wealth of traditional stories. If you are visiting Kilkenny this show is a must see and a great way to have an enjoyable relaxing evening with light hearted fun and yet learn a thing or two about Irish history. We had a very enjoyable evening with great laughs and audience participation. Highly recommended.

A perfect evening we had with Ollie! It felt like we had been invited into his living room where he told stories, sang songs and taught us some history of Ireland. Ollie made sure to personally chat with everyone and included all in the evening.

We learnt that the fairies are not to be meddled with! Ollie Grace is a gifted storyteller and musician. He carries on the tradition of Irish Storytelling with the addition of good music and great humour. We had an evening of fun, audience participation, but most of all I think we learned a lot about Irish traditions and culture. Try to catch this show at Bollard's Bar, Kilkenny before the end of September.

Ollie is a great storyteller and entertainer. We had a fun interesting evening in Bollard’s Bar Kilkenny with Ollie. The stories and songs of Ireland gave us a view of what being Irish really means. Ollie is so enthusiastic and engaging. A very enjoyable evening in the lovely city of Kilkenny
