Dublin Traditional Irish House Party including Dinner and Show

The Irish House Party is Dublin’s unmissable Irish music and dance show. Now in its sixth successful year it is hosted by All Ireland champion musicians, dancers and entertaining presenters in an intimate and homely dinner theater setting.

No Irish house party is complete without a good meal beforehand and you will be served a delicious three-course Irish dinner. Once you have finished your meal, the music, singing and dancing begins.

The show is suitable for all ages, and families with children are welcome. You can take part in the entertainment as much as you like, or simply sit back in comfortable surroundings and enjoy:
  • A presentation about traditional music and dancing
  • A live traditional music and dancing session
  • storytelling
  • Learning a song in the Irish language with a songbook
  • Trying some simple Irish dancing
  • The house party piece, where you can perform something yourself!

      This was my favorite thing we did in Dublin, the food was delicious and the show kept us tapping our toes and smiling and laughing throughout. I would go see this show again in a heartbeat.

      Food was good, the entertainment was fantastic

      We did the dinner and a show. There were about 40 people there. Food was good and did not have to wait between courses.

      The Show lasted about 90 minutes but I wish it could of lasted much longer.

      The performers where very talented.

      The whole show was not set in stone, they played songs they wanted to play that night and were flexible to work with the crowd.

      The night we were there was a family from Arizona and one of the daughters dance. They brought her up and played a Reel for her to dance.

      The whole evening was a joy.

      The show was awesome and highly entertaining. A great way to know Irish history in songs and ballads. The food was not so great. It could be an affirmation of the gossip that the best cuisine stop short of the Channel. A highly recommend this tour anyway, wash the food with lots of Guinnesses.

      A great night out in Dublin ! The evening is held at a hotel a wonderful dinner was served in a beautifully-appointed dining room where you sit at long tables to meet people from around the world and make friends. The show is downstairs in a pub-like theatre. The Irish House Party entertainers are wonderful - music,with some audience participation, and Irish Riverdance-style dancing. The show was fabulous. Highly recommend it.

      This was a wonderful experience for our first evening in Ireland. The food was great, service was excellent and the music and dance really gave us a taste of Irish folklore and culture. We did have trouble finding the hotel, but it gave us a chance to see the American Embassy right down the street and other beautiful surroundings. The location is outside of Dublin, but we got off the bus at Merrion Park and walked. Considering this is July, when we got out of the venue at 10 PM it was still light out, so walking back to the bus was no problem.

      What a blast. Wonder what the River Dancers did after they move on.
