James Joyce in 1902

Enjoy some of Ireland’s best literature-as-theater as you travel from one infamous Dublin pub to another. (Dublin’s Pubs and Writers are a perfect match.)

No city is as rich in pubs and poetry as Dublin, and Dublin’s literary pub crawl is a genius amalgam of both: a 2½ hour walking tour with Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Behan, Beckett, Shaw, O’Casey, Gogarty and other literary greats.

In the style of Leoopold Bloom, the pub crawl meanders through the streets of Dublin, taking in the sights, the smells, the sounds and the scenes. A team of rambling players and minstrels completes the ensemble, giving renditions of verse, prose, drama and song from the literary hall of fame.

When you join this fun-filled evening of literary greats, you’ll discover some of Dublin’s finest pubs and sample the finest Irish Whiskey and brews.  The wit and humor of the troupe is almost as potent as the drink.

“It combines street theatre with the ‘craic’ that makes Dublin’s pubs the liveliest in Europe and successfully avoids tourist cliches that could ruin an evening of high art and low life”. — The London Times

Visit Trinity College when Traveling to Ireland

When traveling to Ireland, specifically Dublin, you must visit Trinity College.  Visit a college?  Yes, indeed.

Trinity College, in the heart of Dublin, was founded in 1592–it’s one of Europe’s oldest colleges.  Let that sit for a moment, and imagine the changes that have happened on the grounds of this unique part of Ireland.

Among Trinity’s many famous students were playwrights Oliver Goldsmith and Samuel Beckett. The major attractions are the Old Library and the mystical Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript.

In Ireland, it’s easy to let your imagination soar!

Best to you from Authentic Ireland’s Dedicated team.
