Took me a while to write this review...but our rural pub tour was fantastic! We were in Ireland for the Penn State football game in Dublin. We decided to end our time in Dublin with the pub tour. So glad we did. Shane was wonderful, fun and informative. My daughter had just gotten engaged at the Cliffs of Mohr a... More

I finally made it to the Rural Pub Tour on my 3rd trip to Ireland within the last 4 years! Why did I wait??? As someone who has spent a fair amount of time in Dublin over the last 4 years I've seen almost every tourist attraction in the city. There is just no question that this tour was the... More

I took this tour on my first night in Dublin, I'd flown all day and was debating skipping it as I was more weary than I'd anticipated. I'm so glad that I didn't. I had an amazing time in Ireland and this was the best tour that I went on. Getting to visit so many authentic Irish pubs in one... More

Considering I'm not a beer drinker I have to admit this was a favorite tour. Shane was a funny engaging charming host. We went with another couple and had an awesome time visiting three rural pubs. He helped choose different drinks and all were spot on. By the end of the night he had the whole bus singing Irish tunes... More

Rural Pub Tours is un-like anything I've ever done on any vacation in Europe. You will not be disappointed, I promise. Shane was a great and informative tour guide. We visited three pubs, and each was unique and authentic. I wanted to experience live Irish music and visit a local pub, not just one in the city where all tourists... More

A perfect combination of a spiritual, fun loving and knowledgeable guide (Shane), great quality service, authentic Irish pubs and an extremely large selection of local beers. If have enough time to visit Dublin, do spare half a day to take this tour in the near-by mountains and change the city atmosphere. The pick-up place for the Tour is very easily... More

We had some trouble finding the meeting place but it was worth it ! The tour went to three different pubs up in the mountains surrounding Dublin. Our tour guide was Shane and he was great. He taught me the proper way to drink my Guiness so I wouldn't be laughed at and so much more. It was the highlight... More

My husband and I are still in the early stages of our first visit to Ireland and we have several tours booked. We're about 1/3 through them all. This was the first one on our list and I will put my life on it, this is the best tour of our holiday. If any of our future tours or tour... More

From the second we climbed into the bus until he dropped us off it was an adventure. The pubs are where the locals drink. Drink awesome beer and have a ball. We wanted to book again but it was booked. Thanks again Shane you Rock!
