Get away from a typical pub-crawl tour in Dublin, and opt for this Dublin Traditional Irish Musical Pub Crawl instead. This experience is all about the music—with lots of audience participation—and is led by two professional musicians. Your musician guides explain the history and stories behind traditional Irish music in a fun and informative way. They’ll also perform songs and instrumental Irish Jigs and Reels throughout the night, too. It’s a truly immersive and interactive evening filled with great Irish music and dancing.

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.

很專業的嚮導,能說動人又有趣的故事,引人入勝。酒吧也都包場所以氣氛很好,不會太吵雜也不會危險,適合單獨旅行的女生參加。 Very professional musicians! Although I was traveling by myself, I was able to make some friends along the way and learn loads of the Irish culture and traditions as well! It was a lot of fun.

Originally had booked a different traditional Irish music night but it was cancelled, and I am so glad as the evening with Anthony and Larry was the highlight of our trip. Wasn’t really sure what to expect from this tour, particularly as I don’t drink - but it was awesome. So
