Johnnie Fox’s ‘Hooley Show’ is a famous activity for visitors to Dublin. The show and meal includes four courses of food, including the best seafood Ireland has to offer.

The Old Storehouse
The Old Storehouse is a superb pub right in the heart of Temple Bar. It’s an exceptional spot for live music. Every Friday and Saturday night around 9pm an Irish dancer comes in and gives a taste of some traditional steps. You can catch them upstairs with a drink in your hand or downstairs in O’Flaherty’s Bar where you can sit and dine. Watch this video to see what’s in store.
The Irish House Party in The Den
The Irish House Party has been providing musical and dance entertainment in Dublin for a long time now. The Raglan Room in The Lansdowne Hotel is the setting for this food feast and entertaining show.
The unique selling point of the show is that you get to experience the music and dancing up close and to see world class performers on our indigenous Irish instruments such as the Harp, Uilleann Pipes and Bodhran.
Our show also provides a unique blend of audience interaction with fascinating stories about the songs and instruments that you won’t hear elsewhere
