The tour departs at 6 PM at The Spire on O'Connell Street, our first stop is an 8 minutes walk away at a local Craft Beer bar where we will sample 3 of the best beers available and learn a little about the influence of the craft beer industry in Ireland today. Samples of IPA, Chocolate Stout, and Irish Red Ale are all included.


At the second location, we will meet some proper locals while tasting what could be considered as the best Guinness in Dublin, here we will tell you some history of Guinness even if you have previously visited the Guinness Storehouse.

It's time for food, at the 3rd location should you wish to enjoy some local freshly made Irish food, we offer a discounted menu in a local pub, where the food was highly recommended by Anthony Bourdain, the menu offers dishes such as Irish Stew, Fish & Chips, Bangers, and Mash, etc averaging €10-12 per person (optional)

In this local pub, famous for its musical history we introduce you to lesser-known single malt whiskey and with the international surge of popularity of craft Gins, we could not let the night pass without a sample of a first-class Irish Gin & Tonic.

We finish the night off with a traditional Irish music session, Irish culture at its finest. These are gatherings of local musicians who play for the love of music. The musicians play acoustically and a wide array of instruments make an appearance on any given night from fiddles, whistles, flutes, button accordions, and at times the Harp makes a rare appearance. Sit back, grab a pint of the black stuff, chat with the locals and savour the atmosphere rarely found anywhere else in the world.
