Your evening pub crawl begins in Temple Bar, where you will meet your guides – two professional musicians! – and set off for the first stop on your 2.5-hour tour. As you stroll through the ancient quarter, admire the diversity of architecture, where centuries-old buildings commingle with contemporary spaces. Revel in your guides’ colorful commentary as you wind through cobbled alleys aside the River Liffey, passing art galleries, bustling cafes, theaters and eclectic shops.

At each establishment, you’ll enjoy private seating, traditional live Irish music, and tasty snacks and drink (at own expense). Benefit delightful commentary from your experienced guides on the origin and significance of music in Ireland. By the end of the tour, you’ll see why the Irish pub is a rare yet sustaining emblem of Celtic culture.

Oliver St. John Gogarty's

Lots of fun! We went to three fantastic pubs and listened to many Irish tunes. at the last pub audience members volunteered to serenade us and some sang gorgeous Irish ballads and some sang Britney Spears. the two musicians were engaging,humorous and talented. Great evening in Dublin!

This was a great night out. The 2 musicians that lead the tour were a lot of fun, and quite informative about Irish music I now know the difference between a jig and a reel. The 3 pubs we visited were great, but be warned, if you buy a pint at the meeting point at Oliver St. John Gogarty's pub, you will pay Temple Bar prices ouch. A bit of a shock after travelling around the rest of Ireland the other 2 pubs we visited weren't as pricey, as they were out of the centre of Temple Bar. The musicians / guides also gave us a few pointers about other pubs to visit if you wanted to see more traditional Irish music after the tour.

It was fun and engaging. Our guides Anthony and Larry communicated a love of traditional music and played really well. They engaged our band of tourists and got us singing. Afterwards we followed Anthony to the upstairs of the Palace where he played with 5 or 6 other musicans and singers. That was awesome,really.

My daughter and I truly enjoyed our pub crawl. It was fascinating to learn traditional Irish music! Our guides included people in our group too. Pub crawl is well worth the time and money, a great value.
