The Irish pub remains the social focus of Irish culture and is one of Ireland's most popular attractions. While most cities around the world boast of at least one offspring of Celtic drinking culture, the original Irish pub remains a rare commodity. On this entertaining musical pub crawl you'll visit authentic establishments in the heart of Dublin.

Temple Bar is a hive of activity where artists, designers and young entrepreneurs have set up small art galleries, cafes, theaters and colorful shops. The pedestrianized streets allow you to walk freely through the narrow cobbled alleys running close to the banks of the River Liffey.

Dublin Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl includes at least 2 of the following famous Irish bars:

  • Oliver St. John Gogarty's
  • The Ha'penny Bridge Inn
  • Isoldes Tower
  • The Chancery
  • The Legal Eagle
  • The Palace Bar
All pubs are located in close proximity to each other. It is recommended to wear comfortable walking shoes. All pubs in Ireland are non-smoking.

I've done this twice and both times were great. History and storytelling plus talented musicians makes for a great introduction to Irish culture. Well worth it.

The check-in process was disorganized to say the least we arrived early at the Oliver St. John Gogarty, found the meeting place, and asked the waitress if there was time to eat before the performance. Little did we know she had no part in the tour and only wanted to sell food. We also had no idea this was only the check-in location and we would be leaving immediately after check-in to go to the first pub for the music. Fortunately, we arrived early enough to scarf down our food, but others were not so lucky and had to leave their food behind. I wish our ticket would have provided better information so that we would have known what to expect.

Once the tour started, though, it was a lot of fun. Great musicians with great personalities and good sense of humor. The music was wonderful, as was the commentary, and it was fun walking as a group behind one of the performers from pub to pub through the streets to the next performance. The two pubs that were part of the tour were staffed with friendly, efficient servers. Aside from the disorganized start, the pub crawl itself was well worth it.
