The rural pub tour was the highlight of my trip! Shane was a great tour guide and set the tone for a fun night. Each of the pubs had its own unique atmosphere with locals who were super friendly and drinks that were very satisfying. I highly recommend this tour!

Went on the pub crawl on a Friday night with about 9 other people! Met locals at each pub that were so friendly and inviting. Shane, our tour guide, was great. Lots of music and singing in the van in between stops. Shane gave personal attention to each guest in the van and made sure not to leave anyone. If... More

The weatherman was forecasting rain so we tried to plan a trip that would keep us under cover and yet get us out of the city a little. Shane was our guide. He was born and raised a Dubliner so he was very knowledgeable about the whole area. He showed us what craic was all about! We were in a... More

We went to three excellent pubs off the beaten path and had an incredible night. I can't say enough good things about Shane, our tour guide. He was a great host and great company. He recommended several different beers for my girlfriend and I to try based off our tastes - all his recommendations were spot on too! We had... More

My other half and I have done the Dublin Mountain tour twice now! Shane is a brilliant guide - the three pubs selected are very good ones, however if the guide was poor or even average company, there's no way this attraction would survive. Luckily Shane is excellent company and a lively (not to mention knowledgable) host, and though we... More

Like many others, my husband and I booked this tour based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was certainly the best part of our 4 nights in Dublin. Shane truly is a fun, accommodating tour guide. He knew we were into more IPA style beers and gave us great recommendations of local beers. In addition, he provided us with a written... More
