We had a nice evening, very entertaining with good Irish food. Johnny is great at telling stories where you learn a lot about Irish history. All in all a very good evening and definitely recommendable.

Helena is a treasure and great diplomat for our lovely isle (Ireland) and the crusty musicians, a great laugh. Fiona (11) and I loved an evening of superb quality but back to basics of good cheer. You must go!

Amazing time at the Brazen head with Ollie. Heard stories and songs while enjoying the service and food at the oldest pub in Ireland! This is a must do to cap off a night.

The evening at Brazenhead was everything we'd hoped for! Our host, Ollie, has a true gift for engaging the audience. He is clearly passionate about Irish folklore and his wit and beautiful singing voice really topped off the night. Great meal, too!

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.
