Our cruise ship was in Dublin for one, nice long day. We booked the Irish Folk Experience online and were so happy we did! We were four adults and we easily met our tour guide, Denny, at the Molly Malone statue near Trinity College. For about three hours, we were treated to an interesting and easy walking tour of Dublin, learning very important facts of the country's struggles and independence. Then, we were treated to lunch at the Stag's Head Pub, a charming place away from the touristy "pubs". This authentic pub had great fish and chips, plus after we ate, the pub permits Denny to take guests upstairs. There we are allowed behind the bar to learn the technique of pouring the perfect Guinness. My favorite part was when after the first pour, you "watched the magic"! With Guinness in hand, we all sat down to enjoy our beer. Ronan, a terrific guitarist, arrived and he began to play. Denny handed us all a bodhran (drum), and we all tapped along with the lively Irish tunes. In all, we were with Denny for about 6 hours. The price--a real bargain, was only 59 euros per person. You would never have that kind of special, small group experience for that price on a cruise ship excursion! If you are in Dublin, be sure to take this tour with Denny. He has a wonderful personality and it was so pleasant to spend the day with him. His email is: info@theirishfolk.com

Having taken my 11 year old to Dublin for the first time, we booked a couple of nights of Irish culture to entertain her, and what a brilliant night it was. Very personal and warm welcome, Lovely people and absolutely perfect for Jenny. Thank you to you all for welcoming us to your experience.

I was expecting to have a night with music and dinner at the Stag's Head Pub but instead was sent to a 1st store room where a lot of exchange teenagers seemed to be having their last night in Dublin - the sound was very poor, and the parallel talking and noises were high; they had a lot of fun, though, the singers and Mary the hostess were great, but I am frustrated

Wonderful Ailie and Stephen were warm and friendly. We learned a bit of history along with the songs and had a wonderful time. My 10 year old daughter, Shelby was thrilled to dance and sing with them. We will definitely do this again on our next trip.

The 2 organisers of this folk experience were very friendly, warm and very talented! It was so much fun to sing with them or to listen to the irish songs they performed. They integrated us as good as possible in this event and we're thinking about visiting this event next friday again. Recommendable!
