Irish night with folk music and traditional Irish food OR also take a look at Durty Nelly's! check it out!!

I'm thinking Durty Nelly's...only because the medieval banquet may be a bit cheesy? What do you think?

Is the banquet the same as the Irish night with folk music? I think it would be interesting! Then again, it's pricey!
