    You must see this
    This was my third visit to The Irish House Party and it keeps getting better. Excellent food in a nice pub, good service and very relaxed atmosphere. We were lucky enough to sit in the first row for the show which was a real treat. It is so entertaining, funny, moving. Terrific music and the dancer Roisin was stunning. The show gives you so much insight into Irish music and dancing in a very intimate setting. You really have to go and see this!

    Wonderful Evening
    Booked this prior to leaving home as we wanted to be certain to hear some traditional Irish music and see some dancing and we were not disappointed. Did not eat dinner here so can't comment, but the entertainment frankly exceeded our expectations. It was not a cheesy, touristy show. The music was wonderful, the dancer awesome, and the narrative by the "emcee" was entertaining and informative. The venue was pleasant, casual, and it was nice to be able to bring a drink to your seat. We stayed near the Temple Bar (Morrison Hotel - review to follow) and I noticed that there were a number of shows in that area also. While I clearly can't comment on any of them I am glad that we chose this venue which is away from that area. Temple Bar reminded us of Bourbon Street, and the main activity seemed to be 20 somethings looking for intoxication. (Been there, done that). So again, totally glad that we booked this show, would recommend without hesitation. Get in early to get a seat near the stage. Slainte!

    A must do in Dublin!!!!!!
    This was our favorite thing we did in Dublin over our 3 days! We attended only the show portion 8-930pm on our first night in Dublin and it was the best welcome to the town and intro. to Irish music and dancing. My sister and I were also laughing out loud the whole show. We both left and said how we couldn’t stop smiling the whole time because it was just so fun!!

    A Great Night!
    We booked this evening, not with a tour, which gives you a more random group. First you are served a first-class meal in the beautiful hotel. The service is top notch and I Highly recommend the Guinness Stew, the best I had in Ireland. You are then escorted down to the basement for a fun hour of live music and Irish dancing.

    Really authentic Irish show!
    The Irish House Party Show was an amazing experience, definitely a must see when in Dublin, if you want to have a taste of the real Irish welcome and culture! The atmosphere was very intimate and authentic and all the performers were so talented. The show was really entertaining, we could have watched them playing, dancing, and listening to their stories for hours. Highly recommended!

    Amazing show with a fantastic meal. They were very entertaining if you want a traditional irish night out then put this on your list. Book in advance it sells out often. Oh and the den bar down stairs is one of the best pubs in dublin.

    Excellent dinner and brilliant show - highly recommend.
    Had a lovely 3 course traditional Irish dinner before going downstairs to the music and dancing show. 4 amazing musicians and a fabulous Irish Dancer, the night we went. Really engaged with the audience. Superb evening.

    Fun evening out
    The Irish House party at the Lansdown Hotel made a very enjoyable conclusion to a few days in Dublin. Impossible to sit still to the music, feet tapping, hands clapping joining in the chorus and laughing. Totally bewitched by the speed of the dancer's feet and legs, not to mention her calm smile while performing at such speed! At the end of the evening one of the musicians gave us a private demo of the Bodhran drum, encouraging us to try it for ourselves. Great fun and highly recommended.

    Incredible Irish Folk Experience
    I came to the Irish House Party as a chaperone visiting from the ‘States. We got to enjoy a lovely series of Irish folk songs and participate in some traditional Irish dances while learning about the different types of dances and instruments. The band were super friendly and professional. The kids absolutely loved it! It was hands down one of greatest highlights of our experience in Ireland. Most of us would gladly come back again. If you’re looking to have some good ‘crack’ (as the locals say) in Dublin, this is certainly a fine place to do so! 10/10 Cheers!

    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.

    Irish 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!

    So much fun!
    I love Irish music and I thought this might not live up to my expectations but it exceeded them! The group is fun and sings lots of different tunes. Whether you’re new to Irish music or have loved it for years, you will enjoy this!

    A 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. 🤩

This show is aces. The musicians were fantastic, and we felt fortunate to be able to see the dancing of Jean Kennedy, who used to dance with Riverdance and is just outstanding. Lots of laughs in the show and some poignant ballads too. The musicianship and singing was top-notch and I would have given this five stars if it were just about the show.

The problem was with dinner. We booked for our family of four (two adults, two teenagers) on our own. When we arrived, we were seated in the very lovely dining room. Great! However, a huge busload arrived at the same time as we did and the host came over and told us we had to move to a side room where the bar was to sit by ourselves because they didn't have enough room for all the bus people. It was pretty galling to have to move into an empty room like second-class citizens seeing as we paid as much (if not more!) than the busload.

The host apologized and offered us a free round of drinks, but we were disappointed. It wasn't handled very well, both in the planning (we booked way in advance so the organizers should have known the numbers) and in the execution. Asking us to move was pretty uncool and embarrassing to boot.

I guess the moral is watch out for the busses!

Great atmosphere, great food, great beer and drinks and an excellent traditional Irish music group accompanied by a dancer with an excellent performance. That's all we found at the Irish House Party.

You can come and just watch the music show but if you can the dinner don't miss it, the salmon and leek and brie cheese were delicious.

It's definitely a place I highly recommend visiting on your days off to sample the food and listen to traditional Irish music.

To have a great time with good food, good drinks, and excellent traditional Irish music, this is the place.

A beautiful Townhouse where you can start with some rounds of drinks while you wait for the show, dinner is optional and was delicious. Three-course menu with starter, main course, and dessert.

The musicians are amazing and very funny, they tell the story of their instruments and the songs in a very entertaining way. The dancer demonstrated traditional dances that look very difficult to perform. Great place to go on your visit to Dublin.

What a fun evening of food and song! I found the listing on Trip advisor and knew a little of the music culture from Ireland from my readings and from friends who had travelled to Ireland before so I thought it would be a fun night for the family and I was not disappointed!

I thoroughly enjoyed the music and the food and they kept us engaged and I learned a lot about the Uilleann pipes and it was truly fascinating. The sound and warmth of the music was great and it is definitely a thing worth doing if you have the time.

As a complete side note, the Landsdowne Hotel had the best pint of Guinness that I had in Dublin and I’m sure there may be other areas that may contend but it was definitely my finest pint during my short stay.

We did the Irish House Party Dinner and Show the first night we were in Dublin. It was such a great start to our trip! We loved everything! The food was great, tasty and loved the vegetable soup! The staff were kind, courteous and attentive. The show itself was absolutely fabulous! It really started our trip off with a bang by hearing Irish music and seeing Irish dance! The musicians were all great and had a great sense of humor. The show was interactive and it wasn’t overly long. I would highly recommend this show to anyone looking to experience traditional Irish music and dance.

my girlfriend and i went here for her birthday and it was because all of the reviews were so good. they bright out a plate with a candle for her for dinner and sang happy birthday and that was awesome. Then when we went downstairs for the music they also sang happy birthday to her and it was so awesome. it made the whole experience really special and that was awesome and then the music was so good. I would highly recommend everyone to come check out their show because it was so good and fun!!!

An absolutely wonderful evening, I highly recommend. The Irish Dance Party sings, dances, jokes, tells Irish history, and includes the audience in a fun-loving way. The 4 musicians were incredibly talented, each playing at least two instruments, and the woman who does the Irish dancing was excellent. The variety between song and dance was refreshing, and in between, Gerry (the lead guitar and assumed leader of the band) would tell jokes, have the audience sing along (THAT was hilarious), or explain Irish history. It is an appropriate and fun evening for all ages, including children. We left feeling uplifted and laughed all the way back to the hotel, recalling Gerry's jokes.

We hesitated booking the Irish House Party at first, speculating that it would be a favorite for large tour groups. We are glad we did! The musicians and dancer are very talented and entertaining. The show is also educational as the ensemble demonstrates and explains different traditional instruments and dances. Our night was a near sell out with mainly couples, families, and small groups. We opted for the dinner package and were seated in the main dining room at a table for two like any guest. The food was good. As I recall we were offered two starter choices, a few mains and two desserts. Overall it was a fun evening.

This was an extremely entertaining, educational and generally enjoyable way to spend an evening. We consider ourselves lucky to have been able to enjoy the show as they had just opened a few weeks previous. However, the effects of continuing Covid limitations could be felt. The current format was not a dinner show, it is dinner in the pub and then a show in a separate hall. I think for the atmosphere they want to achieve the distinction is important. It also seemed like they were limited in the number of performers. So kudos to the brilliant performers who were there for getting the show back up and running, 4 stars, but I left wanting more. We will be back again when there are no more restrictions.

What a great and pleasant surprise. We knew very little about this dinner, and Irish music show, when we booked it while we were still in the United States. When we arrived, we found a very intimate setting, with very good food and a musical performance, that far exceeded our expectations. The musicians were accomplished, and very engaging with the audience. The chosen musical selections were designed to involve the audience, and made this a very interactive evening - which it was. However, the highlight of the show was the dancer who had previously been a part of Riverdance, and her performance, was more than amazing - and consistently inspired the whole audience. We are so glad we chose the Lansdowne Hotel for this event, and would encourage anyone who wants to see this kind of dinner and Irish music show to consider the Irish House Party!
