Dublin’s Literary Pub Crawl Experience
Join these Dublin actors who will introduce Irish writers and perform scenes from their own works: The Pub, the Poet, the Pint, and take you on a tour of Dublin’s historic pubs! You will hear a selection from Joyce, Beckett, Behan, Mary Lavin, Oscar Wilde, Eavan Boland, Paula Meehan, Seamus Heaney and 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 3 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).
Date: 30th June 2018
