Experience hosted by Linda

3 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Irish traditional music (also known as Irish trad, Irish folk music, and other variants) is a genre of folk music that developed in Ireland. I want to show you the real players off the beaten track as opposed to the ones you will hear in the tourist-heavy Temple bar. You will discover hidden gems and also hear some of the best trad music players Dublin has to offer.

SOME OF THE PUBS CAN GET BUSY BUT I WILL DO MY BEST TO GET SEATS. The Sunday afternoon tour goes to more popular pubs like the oldest pub in the city and can be a little stuffed with locals but its fantastic. The Sunday night tour and the Tuesday and Wednesday nights explore more pubs off the beaten track and that's where the magic happens. I am constantly looking for new sessions and pubs to give the best experience I can! Its fantastic for single travellers who don'​t like going to pubs on their one. Its always a good group and friends are made!
Other things to note
We will walk be​tween each pub which might be 30 mins in all.

Definitely worth the money! Linda took us off the beaten tourist path to hear some truly fantastic music. Also gave recommendations for additional locations to go to while still in Dublin. Wonderful experience!

Unforgettable Experience! My cousin and I had the pleasure of taking Linda's pub/music crawl on a Sunday afternoon first week of March, before Covid shut everything down. Linda was fantastic! Got us into and found us seats in even the most packed pub. She arraigned a cab for our group when it was pouring rain. We visited three very different pubs with three different music styles. Linda gave us background of the pubs, music styles, instruments and musicians. There's no way one of the bigger companies could've provided the personal experience that Linda offers.

Très joli moment passé avec Linda et le groupe. Sa connaissance de la musique irlandaise et sa passion sont de vrais plus pour s’immerger dans cette culture et profiter au mieux de la soirée. Je recommande vivement.

Amazing experience, and a great way to start off a trip to Dublin. It helps you avoid the tourist trap bars that are much more marketed.
