Extremeliy knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. Walked at a reasonable pace and gave great insights, yet down to earth answering non-historic questions. Highly recommend this!
This is an excellent tour and so much fun. Our guide Steve was friendly, fun, and a great storyteller and musician. We enjoyed three pubs on this tour. At each one we sang and drank and heard stories. At the last pub, audience members were asked to share a song if they wanted to. So my husband took the opportunity to sing a song. I highly recommend this tour. It is worth every penny.

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.
A wonderful tour...anyone going to Dublin has got to do this..so much fun...our tour guide musicians were so much fun...great music, great stories.
Great music, great stories and great beer. Who could ask for anything more?
What a great experience! This tour gave me a whole new appreciation for Irish music. Very informative and entertaining! I highly recommend this!!

I had given this excursion as a gift. They said it was a lot of fun!
We all had a great time listening to and learning about Irish Music. We even shared a song Farewell to Nova Scotia with everyone. A must do for everyone of all ages.
The musicians were fun and very talented. It was relaxing and very enjoyable! Lots of fun!
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!
We had a great time! The performers were very talented and entertaining.
Enjoyed learning about Traditional Irish Music, Hosts were lovely, would have loved to have head them play a bit more.
Excellent tour. Refreshingly authentic and hosted by two very clever musicians. Be prepared to sing and don't let the group size put you off because it actually makes the experience even better.
Unfortunately, my husband and I missed the Pub Crawl because we overslept long flight from US. However, we met another couple on a tour to the Giant's Causeway. They went to the Pub Crawl that we missed. They said it was fun and said that we would have enjoyed it. Sorry we missed it!
Most enjoyable - skilled musicians who were great company and the pubs visited made us feel welcome.
If you are going to Dublin - go on this tour! The musicians were amazing so talented and so informative. The music, songs and folklore were incredible. There is also a chance to get up and sing/play if you are musically inclined. As well, the musicians were very helpful in explaining which bars to experience authentic Irish music and the protocol of sessions, that is, the jams that go on in pubs and how to participate.
This was absolutely terrific!! The musicians were the best! And...we got a music lesson on the beat, cadence and musicians interplay to boot! It is well worth it. You cannot get the how/when/feel of the music by just going to the pubs but with the education behind it, we found we enjoyed all the pubs that followed. By far the very best money we spent!
This was SO MUCH FUN! You won't find anything like it anywhere else and there were people of all ages! We had an absolute crack walking from pub to pub in the beautiful evening air! i learned so much about the history of the celtic music in Ireland! I met some amazing people and the musicians were so great! This was well worth the small fee and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Dublin! The pubs are fantastic, the music is wonderful, and the craic is like none other!
