Departure Point

The Irish House Party, 27 Pembroke Road The Lansdowne Hotel, Dublin D04 X5W9 Ireland
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)!
Itinerary
Stop At:  
The Irish House Party
The Irish House Party is Dublin’s unmissable Irish music and dance show. Now in its 15th successful year it is hosted by All Ireland champion musicians, dancers and entertaining presenters in an intimate and homely dinner theatre setting. The Irish House Party was set up as a revolt against the cheesy and twee. You will find no flat caps or leprechauns here. Just amazing Irish music, dancing and craic (the Irish word for fun!) No Irish house party is complete without a good meal beforehand and you will be served a delicious three-course Irish dinner if this option is selected.. After dinner 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 wonderful evening of live traditional music, dancing and storytelling. We look forward to welcoming you as our guest at The Irish House Party in Dublin.

Family of five enjoyed this fun night out. Good food. We loved the sausage soup and Irish stew. Was great that my daughter had a vegetarian option. The show was amazing! All the players were extremely talented. Even got a CD to take home. A great time!

Okay but wouldn't recommend unless you're over 80 and never been to Ireland before.

The band and dancer were good but the meal was like school dinners - no where near as nice as the menu indicated. Venue nice but bar staff surly. Not a disastrous evening but short of expectations.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Hi Edward, we're glad to hear you enjoyed the band and the dancer. The dinner (as indicated on our menu) is wholesome Irish food consisting of a soup or salad starter, a chicken, salmon or beef main course and a desert. Obviously this did not meet your expectations, but a three course meal followed by The Irish House Party show for €52.50 we feel is very good value for money and enjoyed my most people who come to the show. Thankfully you felt it 'wasn't a disastrous evening' and we hope the rest of your time in Dublin met with your expectations.

My friends saw this show a while ago & said wear flat shoes because of the dancing. I went and it was boring, not vibe & certainly no dancing. extremely disappointed
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Sorry to hear that Denise. I think your friend may have sent you to the wrong show. There is another evening in Dublin (with a very similar name to ours) where you are taught Irish dancing. I think this is what you were looking for. The Irish House Party is a stage performance which includes traditional Irish music, singing, storytelling and solo step dancing by a professional dancer. The audience do not take part in the dancing.

Small theater one dancer marginal food.

It turned out better than our initial encounter. Storytelling, laughter and a little bit of dancing. Not as much Irish dancing and done by the same person. Who did it quite well but we just expected a larger theater and more dancers.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thanks for the feedback Lisa. We try to create an authentic and intimate 'Irish House Party' atmosphere where you can get up close and interact with the performers, as opposed to a Riverdance type show in a large impersonal venue with a large troupe of dancers.

Food was surprisingly excellent. Order the Guinness beef stew! Show was interesting as you learn about the instruments that help to create Irish music. The dancer was terrific!

Very easy to find and a lovely evening! We did the dinner and the show and enjoyed all of it! For dinner you had several choices to select for each course. After dinner, we moved into room with small stage where we were entertained with music and stories! One thing I really enjoyed is when the explained the instruments and how to play them; they explain and show with great interest. The seating could’ve been spread out a bit or the seat moved as to not have someone right in front of you. We could see fine it just felt there was room to spread a bit. The seats on the side are just as good as the in front. They interact with the crowd so be prepared to be as involved as you want! You can even buy the group’s CD at the end of the night.

This looked touristy and trite, but we loved it very much. The food was great and the portions were generous. They were super kind when I tipped over my table and made a fool of myself. The music was varied and the musicians were unbelievably talented. The grace notes and vocals were enchanting and mesmerizing. It was a perfect evening. Go see this.
