Very enjoyable way to spend an evening. Drink a few beers in a few pubs and be entertained while learning more about Joyce, Yeats, Shaw, and other great names in Irish literature. Great entertainers and great pubs. I highly recommend this as a great way to spend an evening in Dublin.
This was really fun! I loved the pubs we went to, and the actors were funny and talented. I'm only slightly bitter that the quiz questions didn't involve much Joyce and Yeats, as that's where most of my knowledge lies, leading me to come in third place, but other than that, I absolutely loved it! :D
This was an amazing tour, full of fun, history, knowledge and ,most enjoyable tour. Thoroughly recommend to anyone of any age.
This tour was a highlight of my Dublin stay! The two actors gave impressive performances
and shared history and anecdotes of various Dublin authors. It was fun to see the four pubs
on our crawl. They were made even more lively with packed crowds watching football matches!
had a great time on the pub crawl! The only feedback I would provide was that the tour went a little bit longer than it says in the description this caused my travel partner and I to miss our dinner reservation afterwards, but one of the guides was very helpful in giving us several alternative locations nearby the endpoint of the tour.
Talented gentlemen Botha! We learned a lot, painlessly! The bars were better than I expected and the information delivered in a classy way, with humor and with respect for the literary icons they represented. Walking was through one area, not too much even for those of us with grey heads. I'd put this tour on the must-do list of any would-be traveling friends.
We had an interesting time - learned a lot about Irish authors and poets. The pubs were fun and crowded on a Saturday night. Well worth doing!
An awesome tour! Our two guides Frank and Finn... I think were fantastic and it was an amazing evening learning about Ireland's literary heroes! I would highly recommend this tour!
Awesome tour! Definitely not for those who don't like walking as you walk quite a distance but you learn so much and the tour guides were friendly and even performed bits and pieces of Irish plays in between stops. And hey, I won the quiz at the end so I got a t-shirt! Not bad for a detour! Note: Make sure you take the Dublin Historical Walking Tour first if you want a bit of a discount on this one and this tour goes rain or shine.
Excellent Really enjoyed the Literary Pub Crawl the actors/guides were great craic! Would recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.
The guys were great. A lot of information given on the authors or Ireland and the pubs they frequented.
Loved this tour, the guys were great and fun! I would recommend this pub crawl to all I know and those I don't.
Excellent informative and entertaining tour from start to finish.
Great tour of pubs around Dublin! Really enjoyed the mix of literary and Dublin history with the tour of the city! Would highly recommend!
The Literary Pub Crawl was one of the highlights of a recent trip to Dublin. Three seasoned actors brought select literary highlights to life by acting out characters and scenes sourced from James Joyce, Brendan Behan, Oliver St. John Gogarty, Samuel Beckett, and more. We strolled through an area near Trinity College that was replete with pubs that had tie-ins to the literary legacy of Dublin and had a pint of two during this experience. Our guides kept us on our toes with the challenge of a witty literary quiz at the end of the tour, so we had to stay alert for the competition. As a result of the tour, I plan to re-read Ulysses so I can relive our footsteps through the winding streets of Dublin. Excellent tour - youll be a little smarter and happier after this experience.
Entertaining and enjoyable! Met some nice people in the group, and the guides were a blast!
