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.

We had a large group on this Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl. I had a bit of trouble finding the starting point on foot, since I was unfamiliar with the area and generally not that good with directions. The two musicians were good guides to traditional Irish music with funny stories and music playing and singing. We were encouraged to tap along and sing along. We followed the two musicians to two more places, one close and that last one was kind of far. The places were very crowded, but we all had a great time, on a Tuesday night!

absolutely brilliant. Music and hosts were first rate. Only quibble I have is that the walk from pub 2 to 3 was a bit longish, leading to some of the group with walking difficulties have trouble making it on time, or at all. But overall, it was a highlight of our time in Dublin.

I was traveling on my own so this was a good tour to go on. Everyone all ages seemed to enjoy themselves including me. Make sure you eat before you go or get to the meeting pub early to have something because there is no space to eat once you get to the other pubs.

Booked this for the second night in Dublin and it was wonderful! Two very talented and entertaining musicians, three different pubs. Was a bit crowded the night we went - about 50 people in the group - so getting a drink was difficult -- we didn't bother trying to get to the bar, and still enjoyed the night very much!

This was an amazing pub crawl. The two musicians were very entertaining, smart, and funny. They told many jokes, played all types of music, and taught us a lot about the history of Irish music. I would highly recommend this tour.
