“Only for those with special interests...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We thought this would be good for a group of students who wanted to learn more about Irish pub Music and culture. We went to 2 pubs in all. It seemed we were expected to drink a lot more than we did to be able to have a good time. We had expected more of the songs we know from Ireland, but we recognised none of them. We asked for Molly Malone at the end, just to hear something familiar. Bianca, the one musician, was really Nice and understanding, but the other musician who was With her seemed irritated that we didn't already understand enough and he was pretty arrogant and impatient. It cost 500 euro and we had high hopes, but we would not do it again. But we really liked Bianca :-)

“Great Music Great Pints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

My boyfriend, myself and his parents took part in this musical pub crawl in the beginning of September. We had a great time! At one point the walk was a bit much for dad and the lady musician (sorry I can't think of her name at the moment) was so nice she put him in a cab and sent the cab to the next pub and even paid for it. We really appreciated what she did. The music was great and they were very entertaining. Highly recommend you do this on your trip to Dublin well worth it. We wish we had purchased their music CD.

“Very good but unfortunately the people ruined it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The two men who hosted tour were very talented and made it fun. Seeing the different types of pubs and getting the information and hearing the music was very good. Unfortunately for us, there was a large group of young Swiss people who really weren't interested in the show. The just wanted to drink and laugh and fool around, ruining it for everyone else.

“Perfect Start of a trip to Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Two musicians brought us to three different pubs and great craic ensued! I enjoyed the fact that they took into account that some folks may have been familiar with Irish music and some were novices. They were great about involving us and answering questions while singing and playing good music. Touristy, of course but fun all the same.
