We’re quite sure the term ‘pub crawl’ was invented in Dublin, but don’t quote us on that.

Join one of our local Dublin hosts whose sole mission it will be to share with you all the best bits of Dublin’s pub culture - aka live music, the never-ending search for the perfect Guinness and new friends.

Renowned for its cobbled stone lanes, buskers and live music scene, discover for yourself why Temple Bar is considered the heart and soul of Dublin’s nightlife.

Visit a 160-year-old institution, serving up the finest whiskeys and hosting Irish music legends for generations.

From here it’s on to secret Dublin, Rathmines to be exact. Here you will discover red-bricked pubs more aligned with an authentic night out in Dublin, away from the tourists.

Indulge in Guinness, Irish whiskeys and local craft beers as you make your way around from pub to pub and soak it all in.

We find the more pints of Guinness you sample, the more inclined you’ll be to sing along to the traditional sound of those cheerful Irish fiddles.

Reviews for this experience


Antonio was a great tour guide. We went to several great pubs and enjoyed a great dinner of fish and chips. We were on the Norwegian Spirit cruise ship so instead of using an Uber to travel from one pub area to another, we arranged a taxi to take us back to the ship after dinner which worked out fabulously.

Pubing in Dublin

Conor was a great host. Took us to the local pubs rather than the tourist pubs plus his history information on Dublin was very good. Would highly recommend this tour.

The only way to do a real pub crawl in Dublin

Through our many years of travelling we’ve found the only way to even get close to the culture of a place is by a personal tour. Our guide Conor was outstanding, we asked for slice of life and we believe that’s exactly what we got—and it was great craic. We’re middle aged and we didn’t want the typical Temple Bar. We went through that area, but we got the history and some mother’s wisdom about the place. One in our party wanted to taste Beamish, the stout of Cork. And who knew this was a challenge in Dublin, it’s kind of like how you can’t find Old Style outside of Chicago And Wisconsin. But Conor found it and along the way we had a great time that we will always remember. We heard great music on traditional instruments, saw dancers, spoke to interesting people and tried some awesome drink. Conor also had great suggestions on visiting the Chester Beatty library, which will be my next 5 star review. If I could give this experience 6 stars I would.
