What to Expect
Led by two Irish musicians, this Dublin Traditional Irish Musical Pub Crawl provides an understanding of the importance of music in Irish culture, with live performances at each stop. This tour doesn’t include drinks (own expense), but it does offer seating in private rooms (seats are hard to come by in Dublin pubs) in the two pubs visited during the night.

Choose from two separate tours which both begin in central Dublin. The earlier tour finishes in Flanagan’s for dinner, while the later tour finishes in Brannigan’s off O’Connell Street. The musicians are your guides for the evening, and everyone walks together to the two pubs on the tour. This is a fun, engaging, and informative evening of Irish culture.

We were treated to a lovely evening of music and culture. Two musicians took us through Dublin and told us the history of the songs and instruments and the role that music plays in Irish culture. Three pubs in total and a very entertaining time.

Alan and Andy were both talented musicians and entertaining storytellers. Much of the music they played was original which was a bonus. The stories and musical history they shared just further enhanced the experience. Worth doing if you have the time. Not recommended for anyone...More

Yes pre-book is best. But be aware that this is not a pub crawl as the title suggests. Its dinner, that you pay for, and two people playing instruments. There is very little opportunity to actually be loud, drink, and free... More
