Dublin: Guided Sights and Pints Tour

8. Dublin: Guided Sights and Pints Tour

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.

What people are saying about Dublin

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 2,613 reviews

When we arrived, we had a fear, arrived in a huge store...we didn't quite understand the interest. However very quickly you are guided, you integrate the meaning of the visit... and it's off for a good while. We stayed there for 3 hours, an exhibition of originality and above all very captivating, to finish at the Gravity Bar with a 360° view of Dublin. Really too nice. Organization question, do not plan anything else on the 1/2 day of visit because it would be a shame to pass quickly on levels which remain very instructive.

What it says on the tin! Not overally exciting for me personally but its just not my cup of tea - but definitely a must for visiting Dublin
