Make Mine a pint

Good drink and plenty of craic


From sophisticated bars to spit-and-sawdust shebeens, there really is a pub in Ireland to suit your every mood! For example, the well-known writer Brendan Behan (author of Borstal Boy) was supposedly thrown out of 720 Dublin pubs, but even after that, he was still able to find several hostelries willing to entertain him! 

Our Make Mine a Pint tour takes you around the country visiting a range of public houses that offer fine food, top beverages and live entertainment. Here you will find the essence of Ireland, her pure spirit, flowing from taps and bottles that have inspired writers as disparate as James Joyce and J. P. Donleavy, Samuel Beckett and Sean O'Casey.

Kicking off in Adare village near Shannon you will enjoy an Irish coffee – this world-famous drink was supposedly invented in Foynes, Co Limerick by a chef to warm up a group of American passengers who disembarked from a Pan Am flying boat on a cold winter evening in the 1940s. 

However, it’s in the beautiful county of Kerry that you’ll first experience the traditional Irish pub with the music, song and ‘craic’ that makes it so famous all over the world. In the cities of Cork, Galway and Dublin you will enjoy a variety of different historic hostelries, all of them unique and you’ll also visit rural pubs, which in the past would double as shops and meeting places for the local community, giving them an extra-special quality. 

Along the way, you’ll get to see the Ring of Kerry, the Lakes of Killarney, the Blarney Stone, the Cliffs of Moher, the magnificent Lunar-like landscape of The Burren before ending your journey of Ireland’s pubs in Dublin, with appropriately enough, a literary pub crawl!
