What You Can Expect

Dublin Traditional Irish House Party including Dinner and Show

Dublin Traditional Irish House Party including Dinner and Show

Your night in Dublin takes place at the Irish House Party Pub and Restaurant with a warm reception from your seanchai, your Irish storyteller for the evening. Before sitting down to your 3-course dinner (if option selected at booking), learn the stories behind some of the most traditional Irish dishes, some of which you’ll enjoy during your meal (see the menu below). 

Don’t fill up too much on food, as you’re sure to want a pint or two of Guinness (own expense) during the evening’s theatrical festivities, which start after dinner when the Irish House Party warms up. This unforgettable music and dance program features the All Ireland champion musicians, dancers and performance artists. As a guest, you will learn a traditional Irish song and experience age-old storytelling; when the party really gets going, you can sit back and listen to the celtic and Irish music or, in true Irish spirit, kick up your heels and join the craic (fun)!

      After a very delicious dinner, we enjoyed the music and dancing which was awesome. It was our first experience with the Irish music and they did a beautiful job of telling the stories and playing the songs.

      Dinner and atmosphere was great. The musicians were very talented and the dancer was fantastic. I'm still kicking myself for not purchasing their CD. Overall, this is highly recommended and should not be missed.
