We spent our first evening here after arriving in Dublin from the US. Even though we were exhausted, Michael held our interest throughout the evening. He's a wonderful storyteller! Music was also great. Food was basic Irish pub fare, but good and lots of it!...More

Dinner was great and the entertainment was even better. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Our story teller for the evening was Ollie and he was amazing. I would recommend this dinner to others.

I was really looking forward to some Irish storytelling. This was not the case John, our speaker, spent the entire time talking about the potato and it’s place in the Irish food culture and the subsequent famine and immigration from Ireland. Not very cheery. Then,...More
