Tel: 353 1 670 5602's insider take:

Don't write this off as corny. It's actually a blast—even Sir Ian McKellen has done it. Led by professional actors, you'll visit the favorite watering holes of Ireland's most famous writers, including James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, and W. B. Yeats, while the performers play out a few scenes from their work. The 2.5-hour tour visits eight pubs, with a 20-minute stop at each. A good way to learn something about the city's literary history while enjoying a few drinks with a sociable group (7:30 p.m.nightly, April through November; Thursday to Sunday, December through March).
