Take a trip back to old Ireland

Nice place, good food/brews and great stories. I felt like I was transported to old Ireland with songs and tales.

My sister and I were the third group of family members to attend this show. The food was good but the star of the show were the stories and song. The Brazen Head is a great location full of character.

We are typically not up for tourist type stuff, but this was a perfect ending of our two-week trip! Loved it so much that it was one of the first things we booked when I knew we were returning in the Spring! We had a gentleman orator that captivated the entire room. Two of the couples at our table were... More

Had a wonderful time with great stories by Johnny. Great food and a great old pub. We were there for lunch and returned for the evening stories. We got his CD. We will return.

We stumbled upon this by accident on our first trip to Ireland in December 2012 and went again when we were there in May 2016. We will go there again when we visit next year.

If you're going to eat out for dinner anyway, which I'm sure you will while you're in Dublin, you definitely should stop by the Brazen Head (which was founded in 1198!) and listen to Helena tell her stories about Irish folklore and the food culture. My study abroad program brought a group of 20 year olds to this, and I... More

This evening is a great event. It is held in a room on the second floor of the Brazen Head, the oldest pub in Ireland. There is an open fire crackling and lots of atmosphere. You get a three course meal of traditional Irish food, with around 4-5 choices for each course. The food itself is excellent. The host, Johnny,... More

I admit I was skeptical of this, expecting a guilty-pleasure tourist-trap experience, but it was truly excellent. Helena Byrnes clearly knows her stuff - I know a bit about Irish history and folklore myself, so I can generally sniff out balderdash. Her material was fascinating and her delivery first-rate. She also has a lovely singing voice, which I would have... More

We had a brilliant time. Johnny's storytelling is otherworldly - his humour and passion for the craft really made the night. We'd love to come again.
