The Irish House Party, Dublin

4.2
#20 of 241 in Nightlife in Dublin
In an 18th-century townhouse, The Irish House Party offers a blend of music, dancing, and dining. When you drop by for this evening of authentic local entertainment, you'll not only see some of Ireland's best performers, but also learn a great deal about Irish musical and dance heritage. The three-course dinner treats you to traditional specialties and a range of beverages, after which you'll move into the parlor room, which doubles as a performance area. You can meet and talk to the musicians, and if the spirit moves you, even perform a song of your own. If you prefer to skip dinner, you can purchase the "show only" ticket. Check the website for more info, and look for special package deals that include guided bike tours of Dublin.

  • I was surprised by how bad the food was here. Definitely not worth paying so much for a lousy meal. Could have found something much better at a third of the price. But the performers were phenomenal.
  • Amazing night at The Irish House Party in Dublin. The venue itself is lovely. Food was delicious but it was the music and dancing that really made the night! Would highly recommend.
  • Great atmosphere, an interactive show, I laugh a lot.
  • I've brought groups twice and am booking a third. Perfect introduction to Ireland and a slice of Irish culture for newbies. Food is not fancy but tasty and representative and fairly priced. The music and dance afterward, with a splash of humor, is highly entertaining. Not a large assembly of performers. Three or four very talented folks who make you glad you came.
  • We went there for my father's birthday for dinner and the show, and we weren't disappointed! Our reservation got lost (along with some others), which led to a bit longer wait to be seated until they added a new table, but it was fine. The dinner was ok, nothing extraordinary. The set menu usually includes 3 starters, 4-5 mains and 2 types of dessert. The portions are decently sized, although the beef stew could have been a bit bigger (I've had bigger portions in some pubs) and the food is very good. The show was really nice, and the band is really good. They crack jokes most of the time and take turns explaining the history of Irish music and its instruments. The dancing part was really nice (and there's quite a lot of dancing) although it would be much better if there was also some dancing in pairs/groups, not only a single dancer. All in all, I would suggest this show to friends and family who want a nice night out, with good food and a nice show.
