Best for Fun - Expert review of Dublin Literary Pub Crawl

Dublin's literary pub crawl is a fun two hour crash course in Irish literature and history.

This tour is an adults only zone, typically involving a drink in each pub! It's not compulsory but it definitely adds to the atmosphere. Dublin's literary pub crawl is the most fun you can have with live theatre and education in one tour! Informative, social and thoroughly entertaining, the actors/guides summarise the history of some of Dublin's most illustrious pubs and act out passages from Irish literary genuises, including Joyce, Beckett, Oscar Wilde and Seamus Heaney. Combining street theatre with the ‘craic’ that makes Dublin pubs world famous, it's no wonder this was listed among the world's best 50 walks by the Sunday Times.
