Itinerary Details

On this tour that's as educational as it is recreational, you'll embark on an animated and entertaining journey through the sights and sounds that inspired great Irish writers including James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw, Brendan Behan, Sean O'Casey, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats - not forgetting modern scribes like Seamus Heaney, Eavan Boland, Paula Meehan and Brendan Kennelly.

Kicking off at the Duke Pub on Duke Street, this literary pub crawl will take you to famous pubs and haunts while actors recite verses from the best Irish literature. You can sink a pint while learning about the lives of these great writers and hear some of the hilarious stories that became folklore in Dublin's literary circles.

I had so much fun on this informative and entertaining pub tour. The guides / actors are absolutely outstanding!!
As travel restrictions started to kick in that night, I'm particularly thankful that the tour was not cancelled despite the low number of participants. Social distancing was observed at all times, very responsible.

This pub crawl was so much fun! The actors/guides made it amazing and there was a surprise bonus quiz at the end of the night making this a great mix of walking tour, history, pub crawl, show and trivia. I even went on this crawl solo and walked out meeting so many people. Would definitely recommend or do again.

Enjoyed a lovely evening out during Christmastime in Dublin with Irish verse and Guinness (or Murphy’s which I’m not allowed to admit to in Dublin). We greatly enjoyed the performances and tour but wish it were in a chronologically logical order - hard to follow. Still, highly encourage the outing to whet the literary appetite.

We had a great time at the bar crawl. I have never been the biggest fan of Irish literature but we had a really funny evening with our guides.

While there were moments of real pleasure, few of Ireland's real masters were included and there were few quotes and stories about and from them.
