Get better acquainted with the culture, history and stories of the Irish capital whilst having a drink in some of the best pubs in Dublin! Dublin is where pubs were born, each with their own unique atmosphere and long and varied history. Irish pubs have since emerged across the globe, however they quintessentially belong to Dublin. There is no other such suitable place to sip on a pint of Guinness. This tour is a mixture of novelty, history, literature, music and humour!
Venture to Dublin's true hidden gems --including the pub's which contributed most to the city's unique character. Not only will you learn how to savour a pint of beer but also follow in the footsteps of Irish literary giants, seeing the haunts frequented by the likes of James Joyce. You will also learn how to properly enjoy a Guinness, while learning about the rich cultural heritage which led to its creation. And remember, most importantly: you should only drink your Guinness when you can see a clear division between the white foam and the dark beer. If the beer in your glass still looks murky and brown, your Guinness isn't ready yet!
