Enjoy some of Dublin's best pints, pubs, banter and revelry
There is one thing we can proudly say with certainty. . . "Ireland's pubs are without equal".
I have to say this is an area I know better than most as I worked in the game locally for years.
Starting wherever is most convenient, lets take a stroll through a smattering of Dublin's best ale houses.
When amongst small groups of friends we generally always do rounds here, but this might not be possible depending on the size of the group.
If you're interested in whiskey, craft beers, the traditional brews, or just sampling the atmosphere, we can fit it all in over 4 or 5 of my favourite select bars. And of course, we can get discuss anything at all, culture, sport, traditions, and even politics or religion. The reality is, if we weren't allowed chat about these in pubs, we'd never get anything fixed.
By the end of this tour you will be fully versed in good "Pinting Etiquette". A good toast, a few words in Gaelic, and most importantly how to order like a local!
So the itinerary for each pub crawl will likely change, especially as some pubs are extremely busy on certain nights, and others have live music on given nights. I will organize customized itineraries on a group by group basis. However, it is likely we will take in some of these pubs for live music, choice of beers or purely for ambiance. . .

Estimated Local Cash Needed
25 Euro - This should be a rough price to four drinks in four separate pubs. A pint costs anything from €5 to €6,50. A whiskey will also start at €5. Half pints and soft drinks are roughly half price.
I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
We may have difficulties guiding through the grounds of my alma mater, Trinity College. We'll play it by ear though.

If you're looking for THE BEST tour in the city - book this one. Fergal knows EVERYONE and took us on a walking tour of some of the most vibrant and authentic spots in the city. He customized our stops on the fly, took us to amazing places that aren't on tourist maps, connected each stop to history, found authentic hidden music spots and made us laugh all night long. This was the #1 memory we took from our entire Dublin trip.
