As you ponder whether the Guinness really does taste better in Ireland, the actors create a scene from Waiting for Godot.  You may or may not recognize Samuel Beckett’s work, but there’s no prerequisite.
Meet at 7:30 PM upstairs at The Duke Pub for the Dublin Literary Pub Crawl. On foot from one pub to another to Trinity College and yet another pub, you are treated to the wit, poetry and literary genius of Ireland while enjoying a pint or a whiskey or Irish coffee, if you wish.

Colm Quilligan leads the performance which includes song and stories of Joyce, Yeats, local history and pub lore.  Highbrows and good-timers  alike become disarmed by  the warmth and Irish charm.  Engage the hosts for more or seek out each establishment’s  unique qualities. 

 You can wander seemingly endless rooms or sink into a cozy booth at O’ Neill’s or alongside the bar at Davy Byrnes’.  If you pay attention to the bits and clues, you may emerge the winner of the highly entertaining quiz at the end of the crawl.

Possibly upright, most definitely fortified, you’ll end the evening sated, with a grand glimpse into Dublin culture and spirits!  The Pub Crawl was a worthy introduction to the city on the day of arrival. From here, you’ll have an overview of the heart of the city.  And you’ll probably leave with some brilliant plans for the rest of your stay, including return visits to the city’s myriad pubs.
