I wanted to watch Irish dance and music as part of my trip and this was an excellent choice. Easy to locate the venue and it was located under a pub/hotel. The band was simply brilliant and talented and i enjoyed the performance and learned a bit about Irish music. It was one of the highlights of my trip and i would recommend to book the Irish music and dance performance via this app as it was hassle free and worth the money.

Had an amazing time! You'll get free drinks for the cost of the tour and discounts on top of that. All the bars and live musicians were really great. And if you are lucky, you'll end up making new friends. The last place we went to was a nightclub, and depending on your age, you'll love it or loathe it.

This activity was really the best of our stay. We fully lived the experience, the bars visited had a very good atmosphere and the nightclub was great! The equally welcoming guides and the very attractive price for the quality of the service. We will definitely do it again on our next visit!

What a pub crawl ! The organizer was really cool, all bars we ha been had live music ! The group for the pub crawl was really huge so you can meet a lot of people ;)

Extremely insightful, amazing tasting cocktails and absolutely brilliant class by Conor
