I was staying in Dublin on my own and I am the wrong side of 70! so this was a great way of being able to go out with a group of people and listen to Irish music. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the musicians were brilliant. I will do it again if I go back to Dublin any time. The pubs were authentic Irish pubs and although it was a big group everyone had a seat. There was the option of buying a drink at each pub but there was no obligation. At the end of the evening the musicians made sure that everyone knew were they were. In fact we ended up close to O'Connell Street. A great night out!

Excellent tour, a must see experience. The 2 Irish performers were very clever to put together a music and story telling program together to make our experience relevant to this Irish culture. Nice job...

Don't expect a rerun of the Bachelors! This is serious authentic traditional Irish music - played by passionate exponents of the art. Come and be educated and get involved with foot tapping fun. Eat before you come so you can imbibe to your heart's content.

Probably the highlight tour of our time in Dublin. We, along with our 2 musician guides and approx 30 of our closest friends visited 3 pubs and enjoyed Irish hospitality, music, and of course the beer! Would recommend if you want more than just a drinking pub crawl as the music and stories gave us insight into Irish tradition and made us feel Irish for a night.
