Family friendly entertainment in Dublin

A family friendly night time event in Dublin

The Merry Ploughboy dinner & show offers fun for the family of all ages. The show finishes at 10.00pm so most of the younger members of the audience will enjoy a full night of entertainment, but we won't take any offence if one or two of them doze off!
