Dublin Literary Pub Crawl

Tuesday 4th June 2019

Time: 20:00
Ticket price for delegates: €49.50
Additional Tickets for guests: €49.50
Starting point: The Duke – 8/9 Duke Street, Dublin 2, Rep. of Ireland.
Dress code: Casual clothing with comfortable walking shoes, an umbrella or rain coat (just in case!)

This is a fun and unique way to explore Dublin City. Combining two well-known aspects of Irish Heritage: Literature & Pubs!

It’s a tour of Dublin’s historic pubs in the company of two actors who introduce the writers and perform scenes from their works: The Pub, the Poet, the Pint!

You will hear a selection from Joyce, Beckett, Behan, Mary Lavin, Oscar Wilde, Eavan Boland, Paula Meehan, Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley. No need to be a literary buff as everything will be explained to you by quoting entertaining pieces from the works of Dublin’s scribes as well as being given some background to the writers featured – so no jumping in at the deep end. You will be told about the great pubs in the city, how the pub culture got started and how important it was for the trade of writing.

It is not a particularly strenuous walk – about a half-mile in total. However, walking can be thirsty work and so you will stop along the way for a refreshing drink in 4 of our most famous pubs to experience them for yourselves. Light snacks will be provided in one of the pubs we stop at (not dinner).
