This was a wonderful evening during our honeymoon trip. The story teller was knowledgeable and engaging. She answered questions and captivated the audience with songs and stories. The musical entertainment was amusing and entering as well. I would recommend this to anyone that had a spare few hours in Dublin!

Attended "Evening of Food, Folklore, and Fairies" at the Brazen Head Pub. Can't say enough about the evening. Helena Byrne was our storyteller, and she also has an exquisite, lilting Irish soprano voice. There were musicians as well, and the meal was hearty, traditional Irish fare. Such a lovely time. We carry it with us always!!! Wonderful addition to our... More

I hate to write bad reviews, but if I'm being honest, I didn't love this evening. It sounded lovely and we were really looking forward to it, but overall, none of the people in my group enjoyed it and some even fell asleep. Our storyteller was lovely, but there was nothing dynamic in his storytelling. He had interesting facts about... More

My boyfriend and I attended this wonderful event the evening we arrived in Dublin. Though the food was delicious and the diverse company was enlightening, the best part of the evening was Ollie. He was lovely to listen to, kept us engaged, and encouraged our participation! We learned so much about the history of folklore among the Irish people. We... More

Last night we had the pleasure of experiencing a truly magical night! My girlfriend and I have been away for five months now travelling around Europe, and I can guarantee this was one of the best nights of our travels. We were led through a fun and intriguing history by our host, Ollie, who captured our attention for the entirety... More

Our first night in Ireland was a joyous one with Ollie Grace and his music and stories. In just a couple of hours we understood much about the people, culture, history, music and spirit of this wondrous country. Have listened to Olli's CD as a spirit-lifter everyday since. The food was excellent as was the service. Brazen Head was a... More
