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.

A very good way to spend an evening in Dublin. The walk takes in four pubs and the grounds of Trinity College. The two actors were very good and gave performances of extracts from several works of Irish literature with a quiz at the end...More

We had done a similar event in Edinburgh about ten years ago. That was great fun but these guys were fantastic fun. If you are a fan of Irish literature, this is a “must see”.
