What You Can Expect

Dublin Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl

Oliver St. John Gogarty's - your starting point for a night of Irish fun in Dublin!

The Irish pub remains the social focus of Irish culture and is one of Ireland's most popular attractions. While most cities around the world boast of at least one offspring of Celtic drinking culture, the original Irish pub remains a rare commodity. On this entertaining musical pub crawl you'll visit authentic establishments in the heart of Dublin.

Temple Bar is a hive of activity where artists, designers and young entrepreneurs have set up small art galleries, cafes, theaters and colorful shops. The pedestrianized streets allow you to walk freely through the narrow cobbled alleys running close to the banks of the River Liffey.

Dublin Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl includes at least 2 of the following famous Irish bars:

  • Oliver St. John Gogarty's
  • The Ha'penny Bridge Inn
  • Isoldes Tower
  • The Chancery
  • The Legal Eagle
  • The Palace Bar
All pubs are located in close proximity to each other. It is recommended to wear comfortable walking shoes. All pubs in Ireland are non-smoking.

At first, I felt a little disappointed when I realised that the same musicians would be playing at each pub. However, it soon became apparent that this very fact would make the evening unbelievably good. Our musical trio took us to family-run pubs, upstairs where no tourist would normally go. They entertained us with musical knowledge, performance, and good humour. When they called on members of the audience to perform, no-one would have expected the sublime vocals of an American tourist who sang Danny Boy. I'm sure I wasn't the only one with tears in my eyes. As others have said, this tour was a true highlight of my visit to Dublin.

My sister, aunt, and mom went on this tour and well all loved it! The musicians were excellent, both in their talent and in their explanations of the music and Irish heritage. We would all do this again and will recommend to others.

I'd only change the start, it takes way too long till everyone gets registered/ buyes the tickes. This way the tour started about 20 min. late.
But well, you'll learn Irish timing this way.
The tour was awesome!
