Even though I'm Irish, I learned a lot of new information on this lovely event that I attended asking with some American friends. The Brazen Head is a pub with a long history going back to 1194. The room we were in is not quite...More

The food was average and the entertainment top notch, at this regular event upstairs at the Brazen Head pub (an excellent pub in and of itself). Between courses (set menu), we heard stories and songs, and even got to sing along.

The singing and story-telling by Ollie was one of the highlights of our trip. He has just a lovely voice and interprets traditional Irish music so movingly. And his stories are both interesting and a hoot! You must go!

This was a fun event, and a great way to spend the first night in Ireland. The food was good, the music was lively and the stories entertaining.

It was a great night out with traditional Irish food, a communal table and authentic Irish entertainment. The story telling was entertaining and informative, and the musicians knew just how to engage the audience. Highly recommend it for families and other travelers.

Well presented by Helen. A great story teller and had a WONDERFUL voice. The food was good too. They really cram you into two large rooms. There was another presentation going upstairs at a staggered beginning. The music portion was our least favorite. The two...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.
