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 What I Expected

Great evening with friends

This was a very nice evening with friends in a fun adventure. Good organization and the enchanting stories were as fascinating as the music was as entertainment. Good for anyone that likes traditional Irish music at wants to learn more about it.

We did not do dinner but the pub crawl was very a nice experience. It did involve some walking at a slow pace. Probably a half mile to the last pub and we dispersed from there.
