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

The musical pub crawl was a unique experience where not only did we get to visit three different bars, but we also got a window into Irish culture. We learned about the history of sessions and how Irish musicians come up with their lyrics. Our musicians were fun, witty, and knowledgeable. Also, Andy looks exactly like Colin Farrell so be sure to take a picture! This is a must-see experience and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Dublin who wants to hear great music and learn about Irish culture.

Fun time in private rooms listening to Irish music. It was 2 guys playing traditional instruments and singing, not full bands. Fun!!

I don't remember our guide's names unfortunately, but they were superb. they were funny, entertaining and excellent musicians. They allowed my 18 yo daughter, who is a champion Irish dancer, to get up and dance a slip jig and a treble reel. They helped make her dreams come true to dance to traditional music in an Irish pub. The pubs were excellent too. keep in mind if you book this tour, that there is a lengthy walk to the north side of Dublin so wear comfortable shoes and pack for rain.

Holy cow this was awesome! Brenda and Steve walked us us to a local pub with a separate room upstairs with a bar for a private class/concert/sing along and we had a blast. Our tour included a dinner so we went to the dinner show were they played again and brought in an Irish dancer who was fabulous. Food was excellent, atmosphere was great and we would do this again.

This tour was the best thing we did in Dublin! We had two musicians as our guides, a guitar and a fiddle player. They were absolutely amazing! So talented. We learned so much about Irish music and instruments. We will definitely do this tour again if we return to Dublin.

*more seating is needed.
