HOW DO I FIND A DINNER HOST FAMILY IN KILKENNY?

We are heading to Ireland & I have heard of people having a traditional irish dinner with a host family (not accommodations), just dinner to experience the culture.

Has anyone done this & where might I find a host family for a dinner?

Thank you!

Well I won't say that such a thing is not possible, but it's a new concept to me(unless, of course, it's someone you already know that invites you over). I have been fortunate to travel to Ireland fairly often and have yet to ever hear of this. If it's just the meal you're looking for, most restaurants and many pubs will offer a "Sunday Roast", especially on weekends. The family meal in my experience is not a drawn out affair that lasts several hours with various traditions, toasts, etc., like some countries. We would pretty much sit down and eat, then move on to the sitting room, pub, or whatever. Sorry if this isn't the answer you were looking for.

I don't think any Irish folk on the forum answered this, as it doesn't sound like a very believable query! :-)
