We travel to Dublin annually and this is our second time doing the pub crawl. Enjoyed it just as much the second time. The combination of history, literature, beer, and meeting new people/friends is a wonderful way to spend an evening.

Excellent! I wasn’t sure about going on my own but I enjoyed every minute of it. Superb performances, great use of humour and I learnt a lot...not enough to win the quiz though! Well done. I’ll be back.
