Hysterical Histories



Hysterical Histories is a unique Dinner Theatre experience set in a 16th century tavern in the heart of Cork City’s Old Town and is suitable for all ages. Our guests are treated to two sumptuous courses of traditional fare, while being whisked through time on a highly entertaining, and explosive journey through Cork City’s riotous history. Join the owners of this famous tavern as they share through song and storytelling the true stories of some of Cork’s most infamous characters, from the hilarious to the hideous, the good to the gruesome and from the rebellious to the rip roaringly funny. This is an adventure you will never forget!

If you want to soak up even more culture why not pop downstairs for a post show pint which is included in our 28 euro ticket price and enjoy a traditional Irish music session 2 nights of the week.
