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!

Oliver St. John Gogarty's
The Ha'penny Bridge Inn

We had a wonderful evening on this musical pub crawl. My son had recommended it from his trip to Ireland. The musicians were so nice. Great musicians and great music. Very pleasant commentary about Irish music and trad sessions and Ireland. We went to three pubs in different locations and the walks to them were also good. Loved the music and dancing and explanations. Each pub was also very nice and pleasant. We just had a great night and would recommend it to everyone.
