Best thing we did the whole trip. Shane was friendly and put everyone at ease. I had read so many good reviews that I didn't think it would live up to the hype, but I'm happy to say I was wrong, we had a great time and would recommend Shane's tour to everyone visiting the area!

A friend and I spent a weekend in Dublin and signed up for the Rural Mountains pub tour on a Friday night. The tour guide, Shane, called that morning to tell us that we were the only ones signed up for the tour, but kindly offered to still take us if we were interested. I'm glad we did, the tour... More

Ended our 3 days in Dublin on a massive high thanks to this pub tour. Our tour guide Shane was great. Friendly, funny and was full of interesting facts about Dublin and Ireland. We went to 3 great pubs about half hour outside the city. All of them had an amazing atmosphere and it was great chatting away to the... More

I had a friend refer me to rural pub tours, and decided that my husband and I would do the 3 pub tour on the Sunday night that we arrived in Dublin. We were exhausted, and I actually fell asleep on our way to our first pub but as soon as we got there, my second wind came in. Shane... More

We only had 3 days in Dublin but a friend recommended Rural Pub Tours. We jam packed our days with stuff to do in Dublin but wanted to make sure we got on one of these tours. There are two tours and we did the 5 hour one which goes to 3 pubs. It was an amazing experience!!! Shane our... More

Getting outside of the city to see some of the local pubs was a welcome change of pace for our trip. The tour guide was fun and knowledgeable and the bars were the best of the whole trip. an absolute unequivocal reccomendation...Do it!

Shane is the epitome of Irish hospitality. My fiance and I took this tour this past Christmas and it was a lot of fun. We went to 3 pubs up in the mountains, talked to the locals, drank way too much and had a blast. It is nice to see where the locals drink and be away from the "touristy"... More

I won't lie, I like beer and since I've been to Dublin a few times, I really like Guinness. This past trip, my wife and I wanted to get out of crowded Dublin and visit some other pubs. What better way than to do a pub tour outside the city. Shane was a friendly, knowledgeable tour guide on our journey... More

Awesome pub tour, exceeded our expectations! We were looking for a fun pub tour, something a little different during our vacation to Ireland, and settled on Rural Pub Tours. Our tour guide, Shane, took us around to three different pubs outside of the Dublin area. You get a great feel for what the local pub culture outside of the city... More
