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.

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.
