Overview
Discover Dublin's traditional pubs and wonderful Irish music on this 2.5 hour pub crawl through historic Temple Bar. Led by two talented professional musicians, you'll visit famous pubs and bars, and hear the story of Irish music and its influences on contemporary world music. Irish pubs and traditional Irish music - it's the perfect match!
Highlights
  • Get private seating at some of Dublin's most packed pubs
  • Choose from two separate tours to suit your schedule
  • Find the best places to hear Irish music with your musician guides
  • Spend the evening with other music-loving travelers and locals
What to Expect
Led by two Irish musicians, this Dublin Traditional Irish Musical Pub Crawl provides an understanding of the importance of music in Irish culture, with live performances at each stop. This tour doesn’t include drinks (own expense), but it does offer seating in private rooms (seats are hard to come by in Dublin pubs) in the two pubs visited during the night. Choose from two separate tours which both begin in central Dublin. The earlier tour finishes in Flanagan’s for dinner, while the later tour finishes in Brannigan’s off O’Connell Street. The musicians are your guides for the evening, and everyone walks together to the two pubs on the tour. This is a fun, engaging, and informative evening of Irish culture.

We spent three weeks in Ireland, and this was one of the highlights. It's a great way to hear and learn about traditional Irish music. Be aware that the focus really is the music, not the pub crawl. People wanting to visit pubs for the...More

Yes, it’s touristic. And it’s upstairs, not in the main pub. But from great music to spontaneous humor, it’s a whole lot of fun, and educational, too. A great precursor to attending actual sessions, preparing you to better understand and appreciate what’s going on in...More

Starts around 7. I would guess the rain won't stop it because it rains often in Ireland.
