Dublin Sights and Pints
After Irish Independence, a few men sat down and thought about what they would do with Dublin. “How could we make such a British Imperial city the new Irish capital?”, they thought. We can't possibly tear down all the British parts, can we? If we did that there'd be nothing left but the pubs...

Since then, Dublin has become a symbol of reconciling Ireland's British past with its Irish future. British Trinity College with its Protestant legacy has produced Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift, while Dublin's pubs have produced writers from the Irish tradition, such as Patrick Kavanagh and Brendan Behan. This tour is therefore a tribute to Dublin's dual personality, and the pub door will be the boundary between the two worlds.

Besides the history lessons, you'll learn about beer, the Irish pub, as well as partake in an activity that the Irish are renowned for – conversation.

Dublin Pub Crawl
Dublin is where pubs are born. Some don't survive, many leave the Irish shore, several have mid-life crises, but few are ageing as gracefully as the stable pubs that bestow so much character on Dublin.

Avoid the tourist traps and fake 'Irish' pubs! Escape with the locals to learn how to savour a pint of Guinness. Find out how to ensure you always get a great pint and why it's important!

Follow in the footsteps of the Irish literary giants like Patrick Kavanagh, Flann O'Brien and Brendan Behan.

If Dublin has hidden gems, they're the pubs that don't advertise to tourists. The locals. The authentic Irish pub where a conversation is flowing faster than the beer, where the character of the pub is as fascinating as the characters in it, where literature, society and history eternally lives.

Best time to start is 7 pm assuming you'll have eaten dinner prior to the tour. Bring a pen - you never know what these aged walls will murmur to your thoughts.

Tour of Dublin Museums: Treasures of Ireland
This unique tour uses Ireland’s artistic and literary wealth to explain the historical moments, traditions, wars, movements, and eras that have sculpted Ireland through the centuries.

We’ll explore the highlights of the National Gallery, National Library and National Museum, with a break half-way through.

Consider those great cultural and artistic treasures that represent your country’s history. For the USA, it is paintings like ‘Washington Crossing the Delaware’ and ‘American Gothic’ by Grant Wood, original manuscripts of Edgar Allan Poe and Walt Whitman, and objects full of cultural symbolism like The Liberty Bell.

This tour will show you their Irish equivalents:
- Symbolic paintings representing the Norman Conquest of Ireland and the Irish Civil War;
- Insight into the life and works of W.B. Yeats - Ireland’s Greatest Poet;
- The Tara Brooch and the Ardagh Chalice – treasures that epitomise Ireland’s Golden Age (500-800AD).

Hi there - you would need to contact the tour company directly re: accommodating a scooter and group size. I believe they only handle private tours. Enjoy Dublin!
