I would recommend this tour on an unqualified basis to anyone who loves music, history, feeling the pulse of the city. The two musicians who led the tour were knowledgeable, talented, with a great sense of humor. They were engaging and clearly passionate about their work. We learned about Irish instruments, learned some Irish songs, heard great anecdotes and Irish lore, all washed down with a guiness or the like. Susan U

This is the second we have done this tour. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we recommend it to the group of friends we traveled with this time around and joined them. We were please to see Richard performing accompanied by another talented performer once again. Although the concept was the same, the songs they performed were different and we learned new things about Irish music. Everyone in our group 12 adults- average age 39 years old loved it we did the tour only not the dinner. It is an excellent activity, especially for the price it does not include any drinks and well worth the time. Highly recommend it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2018

On my very first night in Dublin, I did this tour. There was over 60 of us in total walking from bar to bar. The musicians were excellent and great story tellers ...they had us all laughing all night....Met people from all over the world...what a better environment to do this than in a bar in Dublin with the locals singing and chanting... It was also great that we had our own private space in every bar..as most bars in Temple Bar were all packed...Highly recommend this tour

Highly recommend this! One of the highlights we experienced in Dublin. Two great, funny and musically talented guys had us singing along. We visited 3 great pubs and my husband even made his Irish debut by playing and singing a song! Marilyn and John Lawrie, South Africa
