The World Famous Irish House Party.

An unmissable experience in the heart of Dublin! Created as something of a revolt by Irish musicians against the cheesy and the twee, The Irish House Party is live traditional Irish music and Irish dancing at its very best. Lap up the pure talent of these All Ireland champion musicians, dancers and entertaining presenters, voted as one of the top ten things to do in Dublin year after year.

At last an Irish music and dance show without the clichés that usually follow. Not a flat cap, leprechaun or twee waistcoat in sight but instead, incredibly talented musicians and dancers bringing to you the sound and fun of Ireland.

  • 5 star ratingAuthentic Irish Experience Not only was the food very good, but the music and dancing was phenomenal. One song called Isle of Hope brought tears to my eyes. I would suggest this for anyone wanting to learn more about Ireland and laugh at some jokes. I attend Columbia University and was very impressed at the level of education in music and dance that was provided as two of the four have a PhD and the dancer was a former River Dancer. A definite must see.

    5 star ratingIrish music, dance & stories A nice evening in Dublin, where we had the opportunity to see the first show after a forced stop of almost 2 year... So, after some confusion... New government rules, a football match... Everything went well and the dinner was good but the best was yet to come... The show was amazing. Even with a small audience the band was enthusiastic and cheerful and put everybody singing (even the Portugueses that didn't speak English). Songs and dances took us in a magical journey through Ireland stories... Thank you for a great night!

    5 star ratingA Magical Night in Dublin Amazing performance by Declan and crew! All 4 members charming, personable, and astoundingly talented in their own right. I also, learned some fascinating things about Irish history. It’s a guaranteed fun night for all! Can’t wait to see you guys on a grander stage deserving of your talents. I joined trip advisor after seeing these guys tonight to make sure they got their due.

    The food and service was fantastic too.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent An evening filled with talented musicians and a fantastic dancer. This is an intimate setting where you feel a part of the how. This was an awesome way to spend our last night in Ireland and one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend this unique show.

    5 star ratingIrish inheritance very cozy The experience begins with a dinner at the restaurant of the lansdowne hotel, tables reserved and a 3 plate menu( regular but tasty)! After dinner you get down to the little theater and the ensemble presents an intimate show of irish music, instruments and solo tap dance! 90 min that pass fast and you regret the end! Not cheap nor expensive but worth the experience!

    5 star ratingA Feel Great Party This small venue offered a big entertainment with the talented artists on stage. Without a reservation we enjoyed a menu item in the bar area and seating afterwards for the show. Front row seating gave us a wonderful view of the entire show. Great music, dancing and commentary. Felt like a house party. ?

    5 star ratingA must for families Since we were traveling to Ireland with our two kids, we were looking for a way to experience the music of Dublin in a family friendly atmosphere. The Irish House Party show was perfect! The entertainers were excellent - we especially loved how they explained the instruments, provided a lot of information about the different Irish dance steps, and took us on a tour of the country with their music. So glad we went!
