Hear tales of Irish legend and lore on a 2-hour evening storytelling tour from Dublin. Filled with folklore and tall tales from start to finish, the  tour takes in enchanting sites like Howth Head Lighthouse at Beann Eadair and St Anne’s Park at Clontarf, before finishing at a Dublin bar for a drink and a sing-along. Look out for Irish mermen and the mystical people of the Sidhe while enjoying a constant stream of stories – some true, a few questionable and many downright dubious!

Hop aboard your Irish storytelling bus near College Green in central Dublin, and then set off to explore the city while hearing some of Ireland’s best fables and tall-tales. The country’s storytelling tradition is thought to date back to the time of the ancient Celts, when laws and history were recorded in long lyrical poems. As they were passed down through the ages, the poems evolved into tales, and you’ll hear several of the best from a local seanchaí – your storytelling guide.

Sit back and listen to stories of mermaids, Vikings, leprechauns, fairies and giants as you travel east out of Dublin toward the coast. After roughly half an hour on the road, stop at Beann Eadair – a peninsula on Ireland’s east coast – and visit Howth Head Lighthouse. While lovely in its own right, the building’s real claim to fame is as a site where merrows (Irish mermen) have allegedly been seen. Learn how to spot them, and look out for their characteristic red hats bobbing in the sea.

Return to the bus and relax with an onboard drink while traveling to St Anne’s Park at Clontarf, where one of Ireland’s biggest and most important battles once took place. The 1014 Battle of Clontarf signaled the end of Viking rule in Ireland, and also took the life of Brian Boru – the last High King of Ireland. Stroll around admiring the park’s flora and fauna and learn of the people of the Sidhe – mystical beings who supposedly hide in the park’s dense shrubland and trees.

In between Sidhe-spotting, hear of Finn McCool (or Fionn MacCumahail as your guide may say) – the giant who led the Fianna band of warriors. Famed for his prowess in battle, the giant lived by the Fianna motto: 'Purity of our hearts, strength of our limbs and action to match our speech.’

After exploring St Anne’s Park, leave Clontarf and return to central Dublin. Call in at Church Bar on Mary Street, where Arthur Guinness (the man behind Ireland’s iconic stout drink) was married, and then finish your evening with a drink and a sing-along – just as the Irish do! Drinks and food are at your own expense.
