Irish pubs and traditional Irish music - it's the perfect match!

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.
