Praise and Reviews

Well worth going to- a real gem of genuine Cork- up the Rebels!!

We went to this as a family outing for my husband’s birthday and we really enjoyed the evening. My kids are 13, 12, 10 and 7 and all got a great kick and a laugh out of the experience but also learned a lot. This is such a fun, accessible way for everyone to learn history!

An Absolute Must-Do When in Cork

Highly entertaining dinner show. The cast was energetic and engaging. The show was original, informative, and hilarious, and held the attention of the entire family. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cork.

Excellent Night Out

We saw this show as an adult family of four last night and it exceed all hopes and expectations. We had a wonderful (hysterical) time while also learning a bit and eating delicious food.
