The Irish Music Pub Tour was great! The two entertainers were fun, lively and talented. It would have been nicer to be able to purchase the dinner version of the tour, or at least be better able to order some pub food easily during the performance, otherwise 5-star!

Wonderful night and exceptional value. Big group but all got a seat at both pubs as had room to ourselves. The two musicians were excellent and amusing . The crowd were involved from the start . Easy walk between venues . Fun and learning experience

This was a great tour and a lot of fun. We did two pubs, so there wasnt much crawling, but the music was outstanding. The stories about the songs were great and the two musicians were both super talented and very fun.

I loved this night! Talented musicians, some explanations of the music and the traditions setting the scene, and the chance to sit and listen as well as sing with a drink in hand - a perfect evening. Apparently there are different musicians each night - this particular night had a fiddle and a guitar, and they also talked about the other instruments involved in other pub music sessions. A great night, highly recommended.
