Your evening pub crawl begins in Temple Bar, where you will meet your guides – two professional musicians! – and set off for the first stop on your 2.5-hour tour. As you stroll through the ancient quarter, admire the diversity of architecture, where centuries-old buildings commingle with contemporary spaces. Revel in your guides’ colorful commentary as you wind through cobbled alleys aside the River Liffey, passing art galleries, bustling cafes, theaters and eclectic shops.

At each establishment, you’ll enjoy private seating, traditional live Irish music, and tasty snacks and drink (at own expense). Benefit delightful commentary from your experienced guides on the origin and significance of music in Ireland. By the end of the tour, you’ll see why the Irish pub is a rare yet sustaining emblem of Celtic culture.

Oliver St. John Gogarty's

This was our first night in Dublin and quite frankly I just wanted us to get a taste of what Temple Bar was all about; our friend who and #39;s a local joined us. He didn and #39;t expect much either. To our surprise this was fantastic! It was incredibly fun and informative! Perfect way to start our night!

This was a great time. As a performer of Irish music myself, the music was not new to me. But the lads who led this tour and provided the entertainment were very talented, funny, and knowledgeable in the stories and history of the songs. We had a grand time! Highly recommend this for a fun evening out.

This Pub Crawl was like being invited into someone's living . The musicians were warm and told great stories. We learned a lot about Irish music and pubs. I would highly recommend this Pub Crawl as a first day introduction to Dublin and it's warm, welcoming people.
