I can't speak for the other storytellers, but Johnny was fantastic. We learned so much and I definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to know about Irish folklore. The musicians were great as well and very funny.

Michael was our storyteller, and he had a knack for spinning a tale, and a fine delivery. There was a short interlude of trad music, which was fun. The food was fine, I had the salmon, which was a huge portion. It's a little bit...More

It is at Brazen Head just outside of Temple Bar. Google maps says it’s about a 20 minute drive and a 50 minute walk from where your staying.
