What To Expect

This Dublin Traditional Irish Musical Pub Crawl is a fun, engaging, and informative evening of Irish culture. It’s led by two Irish musicians who provide an overview of the importance of music in Irish culture. There is a live performance at each stop you make. Drinks aren’t included with the tour (but may be purchased at your own expense); however, this tour does provide seating in private rooms at the pubs visited that night. Seats are extremely hard to come by in Dublin’s bustling pubs, and this is a special treat.

There are two evening tour times to choose from when booking and both begin in central Dublin. The earlier tour finishes at Flanagan’s for dinner, and the later tour ends at Brannigan’s off O’Connell Street. The musicians are your guides for the evening, and everyone walks together to the two pubs on the tour.

Temple Bar

Temple Bar is a busy riverside neighborhood, spread over cobbled pedestrian lanes. Crowded pubs host live folk music and DJ sets, and diners pack restaurants serving Asian, American and Irish cuisine. Quirky boutiques stock clothes and crafts by local designers. The National Photographic Archive highlights Ireland’s past, while the Project Arts Center and Temple Bar Gallery & Studios shows contemporary art.

I was unable to go on this tour because of the Covid virus.

I was unable to go on this tour because of the Covid virus. Viator was very helpful and they refunded almost 100% of the tours that we had planned.
If you love music, do this!

Absolutely loved this experience! Our musicians were the best! I would do this tour again. Absolutely loved the history they shared about traditional Irish music.
Great music and musicians
Smaro, Feb 2020
Great experience. Great fun with the two musicians. Excellent voices and music. I would recommend it to all. Two pubs would hardly qualify for a pub crawl, though. Nevertheless, it is worth it. We learned something about Irish culture and learned a couple of songs.

Wonderful, fun and interactive tour with great traditional, "Irish acoustic" musicians. We had a great time.
Give me more.

A tad too much chat and laughter. I wanted more music, which was fantastic. Superb quality fiddle and the rest, thank you.

This is pretty much the perfect way to kick off your first night in Dublin. It’s the exact right mix of music, cultural history and humor to immerse yourself. Afterward you’re going to feel more comfortable pub crawling on your own, singing along with the live music and really enjoying your time there. These guys are great! We had a time we won’t soon forget. Cheers!

Very talented musicians played all kinds of songs. I wish we had stayed at one pub though and just enjoyed the music.
