From US$55.27
Overview
This tour doesn’t offer free drinks, but what it does offer is private seating at all of the Temple Bar pubs visited during the night (seats and even standing space can be hard to come by in the area), and of course, a fun time. Led by two Dublin musicians, this tour also provides a rundown of the importance of music in Irish culture, with live performances at each stop.
What to Expect
Meet your guides, two local musicians, in Temple Bar before your tour. If you’ve chosen to upgrade to include dinner at Flanagan’s, walk over to O’Connell Street with your guides to enjoy your fixed 3-course meal.
Either way, the true night starts around 7:30pm—after the upgraders finish their dinner. Head out to one of Dublin’s most popular nightlife areas, Temple Bar, and pop into pubs to taste local drinks and learn about music in Irish culture.
Get special seating at all venues you stop at, and even listen to artists from the Dublin area perform live. You buy your own drinks during this tour (own expense), but you can ask your guides, or the bartenders, for traditional Irish recommendations.
This tour takes you to pubs within walking distance of one another, but your guides know their way, so you never have to worry about getting lost or having to ask for directions.
Your tour ends in Temple Bar.

I didn’t really know what to expect from this, I thought it might be a bit touristy and rowdy but actually it felt really authentic with our hosts telling us lots about traditional Irish instruments, songs and storytelling. As a musician myself I found it...More

I would contact the company. It would depend on the musicians giving the tour (or company policy) on the stories and jokes told through out the evening.
