This tour doesn’t offer free drinks, but what it does offer is private seating at all of the Temple Bar pubs visited during the night (seats and even standing space can be hard to come by in the area), and of course, a fun time. Led by two Dublin musicians, this tour also provides a rundown of the importance of music in Irish culture, with live performances at each stop.
What to Expect
Meet your guides, two local musicians, in Temple Bar before your tour. If you’ve chosen to upgrade to include dinner at Flanagan’s, walk over to O’Connell Street with your guides to enjoy your fixed 3-course meal.

Either way, the true night starts around 7:30pm—after the upgraders finish their dinner. Head out to one of Dublin’s most popular nightlife areas, Temple Bar, and pop into pubs to taste local drinks and learn about music in Irish culture.

Get special seating at all venues you stop at, and even listen to artists from the Dublin area perform live. You buy your own drinks during this tour (own expense), but you can ask your guides, or the bartenders, for traditional Irish recommendations.

This tour takes you to pubs within walking distance of one another, but your guides know their way, so you never have to worry about getting lost or having to ask for directions.

Your tour ends in Temple Bar.

Not a good time

“Pub crawl” may be misleading. We followed the same two musicians to three different pubs, chosen for no apparent reason except they gave plenty of beer to the leader. One pub was cash only. Our tour was overbooked so there were not enough comfortable seats...More

Fantastic time! Went 9yrs ago and could not wait to go back! Anthony is amazing! Not only does he sing he also tells the history of the songs and era with lighthearted comments along the way! I believe the other entertainer was Dermot, who was...More

Brilliant night of Traditional Irish music.

This was really fun! What my girlfriend and I liked about this tour: The musicians were excellent (two guys, and if my memory is right they were Eugene on guitar and Dermot on fiddle). They entertained us with their musicianship and with their ability to...More

Sadly, I can’t give this a good review

Honesty is the best policy, especially when you’re making a recommendation to others. While the handful of musical tunes played (approximately 10-12) and the education told around the musician’s music was excellent, it was not enough over 3+ hours. During this time a full 3-course...More

Thanks CanadianMum for taking time to write a review. I am sorry that the tour was not to your taste. We feel proud that Irish dancing has reached many nationalities and were delighted when Maiti wanted to work for us. Sure isn't it great that...More

You meet at the first pub. The walk to the second pub is fairly short. I think it took 5-10 minutes. The walk to the third pub is a bit longer and people were walking briskly. They recommend taking a taxi if you cannot keep... More

The food seems pretty comparable in most of the area pubs. We were done with our pub crawl at approximately 10:30PM. The time pasted quickly.
