An excellent show with traditional Irish music and dance... It's not the cheapest with add ons and drinks, but if you want to avoid the mess that can be the temple bar, I recommend it.

Wasn’t sure what to expect. We took the early seating for dinner. The staff was attentive. The food was good. It was institutional, but tasty. The entire experience was relaxed and enjoyable. It’s a little kitschy, but worth the time.

We knew this would be a "touristy" event, so we weren't expecting much. However, we were disappointed even given our low expectations. First, they sat us away from the stage, behind a column which obstructed the view. In fact, the entire back of the restaurant...More

Yes, dinner is in the same room as the show. There are different times that you can be served. The later you eat - the closer to showtime you are. But, the sooner you eat - you may be seated closer to the stage.

Book well in advance and choose the earliest sitting for dinner. We did and were right in front of the stage.
