The food was pretty good although the ham hock starter was really chewy so a bit of a let down. Luckily the band more than made up for this. Dancers did make appearances for several of the songs but to be honest I would have been happy with the band all evening as they were so good.

Huge loud happy pub atmosphere. Irish dancing was good (no need to come until 8pm). Not much good unless you get seats within a few tables of dancers, and even then the photo tourists stand in front of you recording an endless video. Amplification and noisy hall made the Irish musicians sound like they were competing with a dentist drill.... More

I knew it was a tourist trap, but it was our last night in Ireland and was made to sound to be great. The food was great. The wait staff are bored, but pleasant. However, the entertainment was so disappointing. You could tell that none of them wanted to be there. Of course, the music was incredible and the two... More

Two hours of song and Riverdance. A little cheeky, but worth the night out to see some traditional Irish songs sung by a very talented group of musicians and a 4 talented River dancers. I'm sure there are many exceptional places in Dublin with similar, but this did the trick.

We loved it. First class musicians and dancers, and a good 3 course dinner with huge portions. Plenty of choices. Friendly and attentive staff who have got this event running like clockwork. Only booked it the day before, but the place was full so I think we were lucky to get in..... good seats too. Excellent value for money!

If I could give this show more than 5 stars, I would. The musicians dancers are incredible, especially for someone with little prior exposure to Irish music. The musicians' love for their music is obvious while they play and sing, and the dancers add a fun twist to the entire evening. Even better, the food and service were both top... More

What a brilliant, fun night, good food, drinks, great band and a touch of Irish dancing. We booked this in the U.K. Before leaving home. So good. Great menu, with a good choice of mains. Good choice of drinks. Ian and the band were really great, music, singing and stories. The Irish dancers were energetic. Thoroughly recommend it.

There are lots of different dinner sittings for this show, we chose the 6.30pm sitting, tickets are on sale at the door and in the Arlington Hotel foyer, but I bought mine online from Australia and printed out my email. It is under the Arlington Hotel, the door next to it. We were seated next to the stage, but all... More

I approached this evening with a little trepidation - fearing that it may be a bit cheesy and designed for the gullible tourist. I was wrong! Had a great evening, with good food and great entertainment. It was cheesy but I loved it - everyone was singing and dancing. Great Value for money.

Thank Tracey T
