Musical Pub Crawl 7:30pmMost Popular
This package includes the show only. Tour starts at 7.30pm.
From US$18.41
Pub Crawl with Dinner Show 6pm
Tour starts at 6pm. Dinner will be served at 19.15 in Flanagan’s, O’Connell St. Dinner is a 3-course set menu with Tea, Coffee and guests can choose from the menu on the night.
From US$55.24
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.

Larry and Paddy Were Fun

This is less pub crawl and more music, which is fine. But if you really want a pub crawl, then this isn't your tour. That being said, we really enjoyed it. We had Larry and Paddy guiding us through traditional Irish music and more. The...More

Irish History in a Nutshell

Our first night in Dublin we wanted to do the one thing that was quintessential to Ireland. This was it. The guys were great and funny. It seemed that the pubs we visited would have been too crowded if we had gone on our own.

Fun evening and great music

The Musical Pub Crawl was a great time. Highly recommended if you're looking for something to do on a weekend night. They reserve the space in each pub so you get to sit up close and hear the music, which can be hard to pull...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.
