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

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

I booked this pub crawl for a Hen Do of 16 aged from 20-65. We all had a fab time. The two men had a great sense of humour and told stories that were both interesting and funny. The music was catchy and the men taught us words so we could all sing along. The whole atmosphere was just fab

This is a great tour and we highly recommend going. We went to three different pubs, had a pint at each one while we were treated to music and discussion of the history of Irish music, what it means to the musicians, the different types of music and of course lots of listening to music! These two musicians were very passionate about their music and being able to pass it on to the listeners. We had a great time!

Beyond fun!!!! We had our very own concert at 3 different pubs and the music abilities of our guides was amazing!! Not only do they play, they also educated us on the instruments and the meaning of the music they were playing. Very fun and I highly recommend this activity!

This was a fantastic experience at an incredible price. The two musicians who ran the night was very informative and extremely talented and this was one of the best excursions i have been part of for years. If you have a free night in Dublin this is a must do excursion.
