Dublin: Guided Sights and Pints Tour

ToursSightseeing ToursCulture & HistoryHistory & HeritageMeet the LocalsFood & DrinksWheelchair AccessibleGroup ActivitiesMedium-risk activities

Learn all about both Dublin and Ireland's past on a part-sightseeing, part-pub tour. Throughout your guided tour, you will visit a different pub every 20-40 minutes, learning more about Irish culture and history with visits to important sights.

Highlights

  • See the most important sights of Dublin City
  • Learn about Irish pub culture and how to pour a Guinness
  • Open the pages of Irish literature, which was born on Dublin streets
  • Follow the passions, pains, and legacies of the Irish people
  • Learn the art of conversation from Irish people, the masters of small talk

Description

Following Irish Independence, a few men sat down and thought about what they would do with Dublin. Following much intense discussion and with the preservation of the British and Irish cultures in mind, it was born into the city it is today. Since then, Dublin has become a symbol of reconciling Ireland's British past with its Irish future. The British Trinity College (with its Protestant legacy) has produced Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift, and Dublin's pubs have produced writers from the Irish tradition, such as Patrick Kavanagh and Brendan Behan. This tour is, therefore, a tribute to Dublin's dual personality, and the pub door will be the boundary between the two worlds. Get comfortable in a few warm pubs throughout the tour where you will discuss important aspects of history, including Irish origins, the Irish language, and the Celtic Tiger. With this in mind, you will pop into a great pub every 20-40 minutes. Besides the history lessons, you'll learn about beer and the Irish pub, and will also partake in/witness an activity that the Irish are renowned for, conversation.
