About Dublin Literary Pub Crawl
The pub, the poet and the pint. In Dublin, they seem to be inseparable. The public house is where writers sharpened their wit. This two hour walking tour is led by a team of professional actors who follow in the footsteps of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, Brendan Behan and many others. You will hear renditions of prose, verse, drama and song from Dublin's literary hall of fame. The evening is packed with entertainment and also includes a quiz with prizes for the winners. As one critic wrote: 'A highly enjoyable evening that gives you the pleasant notion of replacing brain cells as you drown them'. Check our website for further details and to book online.

I had a blast on this pub crawl. It's a great mix of acting, stories and history, while getting to do and see the history that's being discussed. I was smiling and laughing for most of the crawl, maybe the libations helped, but I would highly recommend.

A quirky tour around the heart of Dublin. Starts with a drink and moves to all the Literary spots within walking distance. Had a blast. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and answer questions if you have them. I would recommend the tour. You will need to book as there are limited spots.

Two professional actors delivered terrific performances and a memorable experience in this attraction. Part historical lecture, part city tour, and part dramatic performance, this pub crawl is full of humor, drama, and history. Charming hosts who interact freely while leading the tour. It was a wonderful finale to our three week tour of the country.
