Dublin Literary Pub Crawl

 

We always try to give the best recommendations of things to do in Dublin in addition to our food tours, so every now and then we get to play tourist in our own city so that we know what to recommend.

One tour that we’re happy to recommend in a heart beat is the Dublin Literary Pub Crawl, a highly interesting walking tour of Dublin that you can join in the evening. It’s a great follow on activity after doing one of our food tours during the day.

 

What?

The Dublin Literary pub crawl is a 2 ¼hour walking tour of Dublin during which you visit some of Dublin’s historic pubs with two actors who introduce you to some of Ireland’s famous literary works and writers. As well as being informative, the tour is highly entertaining as the two actors perform scenes from Irish literature.

The tour starts at the Duke pub on Duke Street in Dublin 2 and the tour goes around city centre locations.

Summer (1 Apr-31 Oct): every evening at 7.30pm
