Yes the location is the Brazen Head Inn, which is advertised as the oldest pub in Ireland, yes it is a good but short introduction to the country but one does sit elbow to elbow with your neighboring dinner guest (they pack them in) and the food is average. if your trip includes visiting the west coast of Ireland their...

If you enjoy good stories you should certainly do this. You are placed at a big table with more person. In between meals stories and music are told and played. The only reason for not giving it 5 points was because of the food. Which is certainly not bad, just not very tastfull either

She talked about Irish history, and faeries. She also sang a couple of beautiful songs. This evening also included entertainment by musicians, and a full meal is... More

The storyteller, Helena, is excellent. We would have been happy to have another session to hear her tell more stories. Also, the historic pub has an ideal location for the event in a private second floor dining room. We arrived early so we could enjoy a pint at the bar before the event. It was great to have a multi... More
