    We so enjoyed our tour with John! It was exactly what we hoped it would be and more. We were totally enthralled with the Irish history lesson. Even though it was a fairly large group, John was always easy to hear and follow. We'll be looking for more Sandeman's tours as we travel!

    Went on Sandeman's free city walking tour with Stephen. It was great. He shared a lot of historical stories in an amusing and approachable way.
    Highly recommend!

    You will not be disappointed if your considering this tour. Shane the tour guide is superb, funny and has a brilliant sense of humour! He keeps you engaged from start to finish. We met some great people from all over the world and partied well into the night with them! The 3 pubs we visited all offered something slightly different and gave you a great insight into Ireland outside of the city centre.
    I can’t wait to go back and do the 6 pub tour!
    You will not be disappointed as long as you enjoy having fun!

    Very funny mix of comedians with a wide range of jokes, stories and energies. Definitely worth a visit and Whelan's is a great location in the heart of Dublin. Not one to be missed and 100% book in advance to avoid disappointment. Free in to a silent disco afterwards which is a whole other experience and a unique way to spend a Monday evening. Go with friends, family, on a date or with colleagues - you'll definitely leave this one laughing until your stomach hurts!

    Great old fashioned Dublin pub. Professional service and not afraid of serving a bottle of non-alcoholic lager!

    Arrive early on weekend nights - very popular!

    Yep this feels like the real deal. Feels like original decor, no concessions to modern gastro pub culture, bloke behind the bar has been pulling pints for 40 years. Guiness was fantastic. Basically a proper Irish boozer with no food. Sit at the bar and feel like a local.

    My wife and I were in Ireland for 10 days in June. We spent our last 2 nites in Dublin where we went on this Pub and Grub Crawl. There were 40-50 people and two 30ish guys who led the tour. They played Irish music on their Irish instruments. We were shocked to run into 2 other couples from our home town of Fernandina Beach, FL! The tour was great! Good beer, wonderful food, and a lot of fun people. A must if you go to Dublin!

    We were recommanded to get to the Cobblestone to enjoy real Irish music in a real traditional pub atmosphere. We absolutely loved it.
    Our kids were with us and discovered Irish kindness and happiness. Locals were nice with the despite the pub being crowded.
    I loved mixing music and chatting with the locals I met.
    A basque signer even joined for a short while the musicians.
    It was a great moment!
    Thanks to the owners for such good experience

    This place looks relatively small from the outside, but it's huge! It has a courtyard when you first walk in, mostly for people only ordering drinks. It also has several rooms with smaller tables downstairs, likely for drinks and appetizers. We got a table upstairs which was nice and quiet. On the menu were a grilled chicken burger, fish and chips, and guinness stew. The food was just ok in my opinion. Reasonably priced and comparable to other pubs in Dublin. Plenty of local beers to choose from. Waitstaff was friendly and service was pretty fast. A tourist stop for sure, as this is the oldest pub in Dublin!

    Great little typical bar. Perfect Guinness. A bit crowded and loud but perfect if that’s what you’re looking for. Worth a pint!
