From US$55.82
This tour doesn’t offer free drinks, but what it does offer is private seating at all of the Temple Bar pubs visited during the night (seats and even standing space can be hard to come by in the area), and of course, a fun time. Led by two Dublin musicians, this tour also provides a rundown of the importance of music in Irish culture, with live performances at each stop.
What to Expect
Meet your guides, two local musicians, in Temple Bar before your tour. If you’ve chosen to upgrade to include dinner at Flanagan’s, walk over to O’Connell Street with your guides to enjoy your fixed 3-course meal.

Either way, the true night starts around 7:30pm—after the upgraders finish their dinner. Head out to one of Dublin’s most popular nightlife areas, Temple Bar, and pop into pubs to taste local drinks and learn about music in Irish culture.

Get special seating at all venues you stop at, and even listen to artists from the Dublin area perform live. You buy your own drinks during this tour (own expense), but you can ask your guides, or the bartenders, for traditional Irish recommendations.

This tour takes you to pubs within walking distance of one another, but your guides know their way, so you never have to worry about getting lost or having to ask for directions.

Your tour ends in Temple Bar.

Not an American pub crawl, but much better

On our last evening, in Dublin, we attended this wonderful musical outing. In the course of an evening, a few hours, we followed two musicians, as the pied pipers played, to three bar-like establishments. All while learning about Irish music, sharing a few laughs and...More

I would agree that any night will work. We did the tour on a Sunday evening and it was not too busy.

If you go directly to their website, you'll see two options - one for the dinner and one not including it. You can use a US credit card, but it will charge Euro's to it, so use one that does not charge a foreign transaction... More

I agree, not far at all. It's a small group so it moves fairly quickly. In our group one host led the group and the other one was at the back to make sure we didn't lose anyone. I would estimate about about 3-4 blocks total.
