What You Can Expect

Dublin Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl

Oliver St. John Gogarty's - your starting point for a night of Irish fun in Dublin!

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.

Your tour includes at least two stops at authentic local haunts (see below for list of possible stops). 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. 

Your tour concludes late, but with time to spare for more self-guided pub hopping!

Tour includes at least two of the following Irish bars: 

Oliver St. John Gogarty's
The Ha'penny Bridge Inn
Isoldes Tower
The Chancery
The Legal Eagle
The Palace Bar

Fun songs, good historical context, a very nice evening!

Great musicians! Very informative and highly entertaining for all ages. If you plan on attending though, plan on listening! My only complaint would be to the folks who insist on talking. Since it is an acoustic session, it is hard to hear the musicians if others choose not to be respectful.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Great music and storytelling. Our guides were fun and informative. If you are interested in culture and history (even if you aren and #39;t into Irish music) this is a great choice. Have a pint and enjoy the show!

I'm very pleased with this tour! I only had a day in Dublin, and I'm happy that I spent my evening going around to family owned pubs to hear tradition music. I would recommend it to any friend, but would encourage them to get dinner prior to the crawl.

Absolutely phenomenal! We went on Wed night and our musicians were Ray and Anthony. They were awesome! Great music and storytelling. Worth every penny and you don and #39;t have to be a drinker to enjoy it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Fabulous. This is a must for all music lovers. The musicians were fantastic, their knowledge of the history of Irish music and songs excellent. Violin and guitar and a kass with a beautiful voice.We bought three of their CDs we were so impressed. It isn't as one thinks 'a pub crawl to get drunk' no, it is an evening of music, singing and if you want, you can buy a drink. Three pubs visited.

We would certainly recommend this entertainment. Not to be missed.
