Let our Storytellers take you back in time to the fascinating folklore world of Ireland long ago when the culture was one of the mind, spirit and the imagination and where the unseen world was never far away. Connect with Ireland’s rich culture through wonderful and entertaining insights into Irish traditions and the History of Ireland.
In houses around the country long ago, storytelling, Irish music and Irish dance helped people deal with their tough lives that were deprived of any material comforts.
The English used to wonder why the Irish were so happy despite their poverty and it was because they had this rich sociability in their lives.
They had to create their own gaiety and it was these aspects of life and tradition that made so many Irish emigrants remember their homeland. Irish Music is ingrained in Irish Culture and brings Irish people worldwide together to celebrate their Celtic heritage.
In keeping with this tradition we offer you not just magical stories but wonderful traditional Irish music and ballads as part of the evening’s entertainment.
At the end of the night, you are free to make your way to the Pub downstairs and enjoy more live Irish music. The Brazen Head, Dublin’s oldest pub is one of Dublin’s best live traditional Irish music venues.
