Storyteller Brendan Nolan

Many accounts of Dubliners and Dublin City fill Brendan’s books: Dublin Folk Tales Dublin Urban Legends, The Little Book of Dublin, and Barking Mad, Tales of Liars, Lovers, Layabouts and Lunatics.

To these, in live storytelling, he adds tales chosen from Irish folklore that have passed down through the generations.

He re-tells stories selected from the great tradition of European storytellers.

Brendan has been featured guest storyteller on many occasions where his sessions were booked out well in advance, including Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin and the prestigious RHA gallery for the St Patrick’s Festival.
He is a Heritage in Schools approved storyteller, a member of Storytellers of Ireland and an oral storyteller in the Seanachie tradition.

He has told stories to adult audiences in Ireland, England, Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Rome, Paris, Austria and Germany, and continues to wander far and wide telling stories to all.
