Children’s Storytelling

“We hired Helena Byrne to entertain us one night over dinner. It was brilliant – an evening of Irish stories and songs where we learned all about Irish Fairies, Pookas and Banshees. Helena’s stories transported us and gave us a much better feel for Irish history and mythology… We would highly recommend to other families.”Eric Stoen, Travelocity, January 2017

Voted in the Top 10 Family-Friendly Activities Not To Miss in Ireland, Helena’s ‘Irish Storytelling & Folk Song Experiences’ will bring magic & laughter to your family gathering or children’s event.

Combining her love of Irish folklore and passion for Irish music, Helena Byrne regularly performs as a traditional seanchaí (storyteller) and folk singer across Ireland, the USA and further afield. For children and adults alike, Helena’s storytelling interweaves tales of the Other World and the mysterious Fairy Folk with traditional Irish songs and wonderful insights into the Irish life of days gone by.

“Ms Byrne participated in the Kids Euro Festival at the Embassy of Ireland in Washington DC… She is a gifted storyteller, performer & singer, bringing to life Irish folklore & culture interwoven with Traditional Irish songs. The audiences at the embassy, young & old alike, were very impressed with Ms. Byrne’s performances & storytelling.”Daniel Mulhall, Ambassador of Ireland to the USA, December 2017
