Overview

The pub, the poet and the pint. In Dublin, they seem to be inseparable. The public house is where writers sharpened their wit. This two hour walking tour is led by a team of professional actors who follow in the footsteps of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, Brendan Behan and many others. You will hear renditions of prose, verse, drama and song from Dublin's literary hall of fame. The evening is packed with entertainment and also includes a quiz with prizes for the winners. As one critic wrote: 'A highly enjoyable evening that gives you the pleasant notion of replacing brain cells as you drown them'. Check our website for further details and to book online.

James Joyce's Ulysses is seen as one of the top 10 books of the 20th century. The actor tells the story of the book and the journey made by Mr Bloom - a Dublin Jew - around the city as he bumps into fair-weather friend...More

Thanks to brilliant and charming actors Frank and Finnegan. the pub crawl was a top experience of our 5-day Dublin trip. The whole concept works well, just enough time for a few pints and casual chatting in 3-4 interesting pubs and smooth transition walking between...More
