6 pubs visited over 9 hours with a small group and a local to be your driver/guide. Brilliant! Shane took us out of the city on some beautiful roads to fabulous pubs. There was also a dinner stop and plenty of sights pointed out, stories told and songs sung. One couple in our group had been before on their last... More

We did the 5 hour, 3 pub tour on our first night in Dublin. I traveled with my wife and 2 adult sons (18 and 21). Shane, our guide/driver, took us to three pubs just outside of the city. You spend about 1 hour in each pub. The price of the tour is for transportation and You are responsible for... More

If you like to drink, you like going to bars/pubs and you want to experience something a little different then book a Pub Crawl with this company! We had an absolute blast. Shane, our guide was great, good humored and very relaxed dealing with a bunch of drunks by the end of the evening. We really enjoyed getting out of... More

Just want to throw my 2cents in and say you can't go wrong with Shane and his rural pub tour. Every stop was fun and unique with lots of great people, beer, food, music, and maybe a shot or two of whiskey thrown in for good measure. If you have a night in Dublin and want to experience Ireland from... More

Did the tour last Saturday and had the best day ever. Fantastic service, great tour guide in Shane who mixed fun and local knowledge. Saw absolutely amazing views of the Wicklow mountains that we would never have seen otherwise as our trip to Dublin was short. The pubs on the tour were warm and welcoming and every one was different.... More

We took an amazing rural pub tour with Shane as our tour guide. What a great way to visit the pubs of rural Ireland. In addition to being our driver, he was also an excellent tour guide. This is a must do tour. You will not be disappointed-it will be a guaranteed highlight of your vacation to Dublin.

A must do activity when visiting Dublin. We stayed in Temple Bar and visited all the local pubs. Getting out in the hills and experiencing places like Johnnie Fox's was a much more memorable experience. Shane is an excellent tour guide and will keep you entertained all night.
