We loved the Rural Pub Tour. Every pub we visited was unique in it's own way, and we enjoyed all of them. Shane was a great guide and made sure everyone was having a good time. This tour was the highlight of our time in Dublin. Highly recommended!!!

We read some of the other reviews and decided to give it a shot, Shane is awesome, the pubs fantastic and the Irish people wonderful. We stopped at six locations and each had its own charm, dinner was fantastic and Johnnie Fox's was great. We were in town for PSU vs UCF and had a great time. Would we do... More

I was just in Dublin for the Penn State football game with my buddy Doug!! This was my third time to Dublin, so I have experienced most of the downtown area. This tour sounded like a great idea. Not only was it a great idea, it was a night I will never forget. Shane is the absolute best at what... More

Talk about living up to expectations! This was a great way to get out of the city, meet new people and hit some great pubs. We did the 9 hour tour and it was amazing. The food at the lodge was a surprising delight. The Irish coffees were spectacular. But Shane is what really makes this trip great. He knows... More

This was the first thing that we did upon arrival. Little did we know that it would be our favorite part of the trip! Shane was accommodating, friendly, and hilarious. If you want to experience a setting where you feel like part of each town, bantering with locals, and telling jokes-this is the thing to do! Shane had all the... More

This was a great time! I foolishly waited until the last minute to book and there was no more availability. But Shane did me a huge favor by keeping me in mind and letting me know when there was a last minute cancellation. Shane was a great guy who was entertaining and fun from the first minute to the last.... More

Me and my mom went on the 5 hour tour on Sunday and had a blast! My mom was a bit hesitant at first, but by the time we were leaving the first pub she was already raving about how much fun she was having. Shane is awesome, and the first pub he took us to was filled with friendly... More

When you visit Dublin, you must see the countryside, and this tour is a great way to do it. Shane has chosen a wonderful cross section of pubs and experiences. We had the opportunity to hang out with the locals, drink some pints and the culmination was listening to some amazing local musicians. On the way back to Dublin, Shane... More

A 6-pub 9-hr tour across the Irish countryside after 20 hrs of travel was a great way to start our vacation. Shane was a fantastic host and safely transported us from one drinking establishment to the next, while simultaneously entertaining and informing us. The view from the Blue Light Pub was breathtaking and dinner at Glenmalure Lodge was incredible. Anyone... More

My friend and I were looking for fun things to do in and around Dublin and stumbled upon the great reviews of The Rural Pub Tour. We didn't think it was possible for it to live up to all the raves, but it did more than that! It was the best experience we had our entire time in Ireland and... More
