Settle in with a pint of the pure for a guided tour through Irish mythology.
After five years of honing our skills in front of a nation of storytellers, Candlelit Tales have developed a unique show especially for visitors to Ireland, new to Irish myth and folklore. We take the audience on a whistlestop tour through Irish mythology and Dublin Folksongs, while they enjoy the delicious food and warm atmosphere of the Parnell Heritage.
Lively, engaging, and using simple language to tell great stories, this is ideal for visitors to Ireland who want a truly authentic glimpse into Irish culture.
It’s simple. But something happens when you gather people together in a room and tell them ancient stories from the dawn of time. A hush descends. You could hear a pin drop. Modernity and all its distractions fall away, and we are together, held in a tale by the flickering candlelight, listening as all our human ancestors listened, carried away on an ancient journey: on a story.
Having built up our craft in front of some of the most discerning storytellers in the world (the Irish), we’ve handpicked a little tasting menu of our favourite tales for anyone new to Irish stories, or new to Irish shores.
Specially selected to bring you the fun and humour, the excitement and adventure, the true love and magic of Irish mythology, we’ll take you on a journey without ever leaving the cozy surrounds of the Parnell Heritage.
It’s not your average evening out in Dublin.
Doors open at 18:00 the show starts at 18:30 so please arrive slightly early to get a good seat.
Bar service and food service available.
