What You Can Expect

Dublin Literary Pub Crawl

Dublin Literary Pub Crawl

On this tour that's as educational as it is recreational, you'll embark on an animated and entertaining journey through the sights and sounds that inspired great Irish writers including James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw, Brendan Behan, Sean O'Casey, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats - not forgetting modern scribes like Seamus Heaney, Eavan Boland, Paula Meehan and Brendan Kennelly.

Kicking off at the Duke Pub on Duke Street, this literary pub crawl will take you to famous pubs and haunts while actors recite verses from the best Irish literature. You can sink a pint while learning about the lives of these great writers and hear some of the hilarious stories that became folklore in Dublin's literary circles.

An amazing tour! I would recommend anyone travelling to Dublin to book this program, but book early, as they fill up fast! The content ties well with any other historical tours in Dublin. The hosts were amazing and the pubs fantastic.

The tour was great! A couple of the bars were so busy that the literary portion was done outside at nearby sites. For an Irish literature novice I had a great time.
