We attended this storytelling evening on our last night in Dublin. The stories were wonderful and informative, our hosts and musicians were engaging and entertaining and the food was also really lovely. Great night, definitely worth going.

Our time at the Brazen Head was excellent. The food was okay. Traditional Irish dishes. Prepared well, but nothing that you'd call amazing. What was amazing was the storytelling. We hoped it would be good. It was excellent.
