16th November 2018 – Candlelit Tales: The Táin

Cosy up in the Victorian bar at the Irish Whiskey Museum as the talented storytellers of Candlelit Tales combine Irish mythology and traditional Irish music for a riveting storytelling experience. Sit back and relax over a drink as they transport you to the world of Irish myth and legend.

This month is the story of The Táin!

Queen Medhb of Connaught wants something: a prized bull of Ulster. And Queen Medhb is the sort of person who gets what she wants. On Samhain, when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest, she will march on Ulster with the armies of Ireland. But as the days grow darker, danger lurking in the shadows grows too.

Join us on November 16th at 8:00pm for this exciting storytelling experience. The full cafe bar will be open before, during and after the storytelling to allow for maximum enjoyment throughout the night.

This October, join us for the tales of the growing shadow that would lead Ireland into its most terrible ancient war. Murder, betrayal, and cursed men lead us into the dark half of the year.

The darkness of Samhain goes deeper than ghosts, darker than trick or treat.
