Owner description: Looking for a traditional Irish music show that’s perfect for the whole family? The Rare Auld Times Irish Music Show is a truly unique way to experience Irish music in Dublin. Performed by one of the city’s top traditional Irish band and some of its most entertaining presenters, the show blends stories, history, and song in an intimate setting.The show takes place in one of Dublin’s most beloved Irish Pubs, Peadar Kearney’s. The entire lower level of the pub has been converted into a family-friendly performance space. Set up cabaret-style, with chairs and benches clustered around small tables, you will feel as though you have been transported to a simpler--and more musical--place and time. When you enter, the friendly bartender will offer everyone their choice of an expertly poured pint or soft drink. Settling into your seats, the lights dim and the next 2 1/2 hours fly by in a whirl of music, laughter, and fun.

Our show was canceled the day of the performance and we were promised a refund via Pay Pal. After nearly a month and numerous emails, NOTHING. I booked this because of its wonderful rating on TripAdvisor. I'm not sure what the recourse for us is, but I certainly cannot recommend it!

Peadar Kearney's is classic. I felt truly Irish there! We went for the show Rare Auld Times to experience traditional Irish music and we were not disappointed. Great setting - great music - great value. A thoroughly enjoyable evening I would recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.

Having family visiting Dublin with teens under 18 this was the perfect way for the kids to experience Irish music in a setting that was appropriate for them. There parents wanted them to see an Irish music session and get a little history but didn't want to pay for some of the more expensive shows that included dinners at over €50 per person. For the 5 of us to see the show cost about €55 in total and included a free drink for all of us (soft drinks for the kids). The performers were some of the best I have heard in Dublin in a long time. They were very funny and informative. There was even a chance to get up and learn how to play the whistle and Irish drum. When the show finished the performers hung around and took time to talk with us and many others. I would strongly suggest this show for anyone visiting Dublin and particularly if you have kids with you. It was a very memorable night for all!

Visited this show with a group of friends looking for some traditional Irish music and some good old stories and this is what we got. It was craic agus ceol with some banter thrown in for good measure. I will be heading back here again.
