Dublin: Private Pub Crawl Tour

3. Dublin: Private Pub Crawl Tour

Dublin is where pubs are born. Some do not survive, many leave the Irish shore, but few age as gracefully as the stable pubs that bestow so much character on Dublin. Avoid the tourist traps and fake 'Irish' pubs, and escape with the locals to learn how to savor a pint of Guinness on this pub crawl. 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 the 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 live. The best time to start is 7 PM, assuming you've eaten dinner prior to the tour. Bring a pen — you never know what these aged walls will murmur to your thoughts.

Dublin: Guided Sights and Pints Tour

10. Dublin: Guided Sights and Pints Tour

Following Irish Independence, a few men sat down and thought about what they would do with Dublin. Following much intense discussion and with the preservation of the British and Irish cultures in mind, it was born into the city it is today. Since then, Dublin has become a symbol of reconciling Ireland's British past with its Irish future. The British Trinity College (with its Protestant legacy) has produced Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift, and 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. Get comfortable in a few warm pubs throughout the tour where you will discuss important aspects of history, including Irish origins, the Irish language, and the Celtic Tiger. With this in mind, you will pop into a great pub every 20-40 minutes. Besides the history lessons, you'll learn about beer and the Irish pub, and will also partake in/witness an activity that the Irish are renowned for, conversation.

Talented, knowledgeable Fiona Dalton, in her character, flexible, enthusiastic and refreshing. I learned more about Dublin ( and reasons to come back and see more semi hidden treasures) than I learned in my last four trips here. Fiona is a certifiably professional singer and actress overflowing with ideas and passion for her work. We almost didn’t notice the rain. I highly recommend especially early in a trip because it would shape the whole outlook on what to see.

Our guide, Catherine was very knowledgeable, but made the information very accessible and interesting. The food outlets we visited were excellent and all the food and drink we tasted was beautifully presented and very tasty. It was an excellent morning's activity.

Paul was a great guide. Very nice contact to discuss everything important. He responded to all requests and was able to show us many exciting places, together with a lot of interesting facts, we got to know Dublin anew. Thank you for the great day. Jenny and Anton

we had a great time with Eoghan. He was very knowledgable and had a lot of interesting stories to tell. We have learned a lot about Dublin and had a good laugh. Thank you for this good experience !

Conor was funny, very knowledgeable ( without being just historical) and very good company. Great tour despite the inclement weather.
