My wife and I visited Ireland for the first time in the middle of October. After a few days of research before the trip, we figured the Rural Pub Tour looked fun and it had excellent reviews. We now know why. This was, hands-down, without a doubt, the best thing we did in our entire 8-day trip to Ireland. Shane is hysterical and the best host anyone could ask for. He took pictures for us all night, gave us all the insider tips about pub culture in Ireland, and went above and beyond to ensure our trip was perfect.
We did this tour on the last night of our trip and we couldn't have thought of a better way to finish the vacation. Our group was awesome, the pubs were awesome, Shane was awesome, the Guinness was awesome - the whole night was brilliant.
When we go back to Ireland, we may even do this tour twice in the same trip. It's that fun.
